    One thought on “Where Robot Mice & Robot Men Run Round in Robot Towns”

    1. Really, I need a theory of poetics. There were some of these I liked, but not exactly as poetry, more as memoir or confessional literature -- the one about crying in the shower, for example, it was a lovely arc of thought, the elderly man alone in his home finding relief and peace crying in the shower, and scolding himself (and other men) for thinking that crying was only for women, and wishing he had known years ago the relief that tears can bring. But you see, the problem is: that summary is n [...]

    2. You might assume, like I did, that a poetry collection called "Where Robot Mice & Robot Men Run Round in Robot Towns" would be satirical or even funny but this collection was really none of those things. I'm not entirely sure what this poetry collection was about overall, if it's about anything but I can't say I really enjoyed it. Although it had it's rare moments, these moments were overshadowed by long poems, over saturation of references to literary works, and an overall lack of understan [...]

    3. This is Bradbury's second book of poetry and it is slighter than his first, in several ways.First, it is a slim volume. The edition I read clocks in with only 77 pages, which is about half the length of his first volume, "Where Elephants Last in the Dooryard Bloomed." Length is no assurance of quality, but if you're going to create a smaller book the second time out, you should have some assurance that the quality of the pieces you're collecting is really top-rate. This collection does not feel [...]

    4. Hackneyed, uninspiring, egotistical, often clearly envious of other others. I'm not sure I'd even call this "poetry". Having said that, there were a few random poems that I got something out of, if only for the idea. The poem about a man reflecting on the childhood games he played with his friends while looking at the landscape in which their young imaginations soared is one anyone reflecting on their lost childhoods can appreciate in spirit. But it turned a little angry toward the end when he n [...]

    5. This has it's moments. The 'Why didn't somebody tell me about crying in the shower?' poem is quite good, so is 'Somewhere a band is playing' which he later turned into a novelette. My favorite was 'Ghost at the window, Hive on the hearth'. The man was fearless when playing with words, and sometimes he makes combinations that were just _so right_ you wonder why they were never put together before. It's not GREAT poetry, but it is a lot of fun. (another good one to look for, 'I have a brother, mos [...]
