Walking Shadows

Golem received a lovely communication from Dr. Neal Whitman who, in addition to managing a career devoted to education,  finds the time to be a docent at the Robinson Jeffers Tor House (pictured) and to make regular contributions to the fine poetry blog Getting Something Read (he’s the Poetry Prof).  Noting the Golem’s recent commemoration of Jeffers’ birthday (here), Whitman points up a quality of the poem (and literature in general)–it’s not just read, but re-read again and again.   I was moved to remember how I “discovered” Jeffers in my youth, and how my relationship with the poet has evolved since.  Truly, the greats are born and never die.

Enjoy Whitman’s recent post on Jeffers here.

(Note to golem: must get to Carmel!)
