A Radical Practice indeed. She dares the risk of stepping into the heart of Oppen’s lifelong philosophic and artistic task, meanwhile unceasingly opening doors the rest of us might follow thru. Thackrey’s lucid and pensive essay acknowledges the pressures and mysteries of these moments, as she clarifies, through them, Oppen’s investigations of the arduous path of appearance.

Cultural Writing. Poetics. "Susan Thackrey's meeting with George Oppen's poetry and other writings...is as courageous, revealing, and unfailingly 'studiously unprepared' an encounter of poet with poet as I know. She dares the risk of stepping in to the heart of Oppen's lifelong philosophic and artistic task, meanwhile unceasingly opening doors the rest of us might follow thru"-Steve Dickinson. "Susan Thackrey's essay provides a deep and precise account of Oppen as intellectual and as poet. It is especially noteworthy for its clear and persuasive account of how the poem can be 'mind in the world, coming into being, not mind or world, not one being a content or about the other'" - Charles Altieri.

The reviewer who snipes "not worth your time or money...you can find it all in Oppen's letters, etc." hasn't digested those letters, or the poetry of George Oppen, nearly as intimately as did Ms. Thackrey. As I had some role in getting this work into existence and, hence, into print (having convinced Susan T. that it was a good idea for her to write and deliver the annual George Oppen Memorial Lecture for the Poetry Center at SF State University), I won't offer a review per se. Rather, I'll quote from what I'd earlier written for the back of the book:

"'A Radical Practice' indeed. Susan Thackrey's meeting with George Oppen's poetry and other writings --in fact, the whole of his available body of work gets implicated-- is as courageous, revealing, and unfailingly 'studiously unprepared' an encounter of poet with poet as I know. She dares the risk of stepping in to the heart of Oppen's lifelong philosophic and artistic task, meanwhile unceasingly opening doors the rest of us might follow thru. This generous reading arrives at recognitions that (as Oppen knew) are simply not possible outside poetry."

This is a powerful and even useful little book (at 72pp, not all that little).

In less than 60 small pages I believe Susan Thackrey has written the best book one might want to read on the poetry and function of one George Oppen. George Oppen: A Radical Practice offers excellent selections from the poems and a cut glass appraisal, making skilled draughts into the works of Cezanne, Heidegger and Oppen's contemporaries without ever losing sight and dimension to these handcrafted poems. Rather than divulging any answers, secrets, insights and full MFA malarkey that will choke a horse, one only wants more poetry when done reading this book that was given as a lecture at San Francisco State University. I also don't believe Martin Heidegger has ever been quite so well shown for his currency in Oppen's work. In the modern world, he says, a human being is "the rational animal who is the subject for his objects" - rather than being open to the "things" the beings, of this world. The lived moment has disappeared.  This also means humankind, trees, prairies, animal matter, bird songs and earth - also missing from the poetry of many who believe they have taken up the cause of "language" but not the gristle, landscape and the blood of Lorca that Oppen also knew. He could whistle while he worked. From "Woodburners We Recommend" by Bob Arnold (Longhouse Publishers & Booksellers)

Thackrey's "a radical practice' is an essay, not a book, and a thin essay at that. If you're like me, you buy anything with Oppen's name on it and sort it out later (this is not so dangerous as it sounds since there is next to no litrature on this astounding poet), but this essay will not assist you in understanding Oppen's poems or his relationship to Heidegger's philosophy. Thackrey's "philisophical" investigations consist of verbatum readings of Oppen's letters on the subject, which points you at least in the right direction. Put twelve bucks toward DuPlessis' "selected letters" and you will be very happy you did.
