For Wed. (April 26)

Let’s continue on in Phil Levine’s What Work Is.  Read the third part of the collection, the sequence of poems titled “Burned.”

I’d like to focus or start with two questions about Levine’s poetry: What is the “message from the kingdom of fire” in the title poem, “What Work Is”?  And, after reading the “Burned” sequence, what does it mean to “burn” or be “burned” in Levine’s poems?
