I am constantly amazed by the elegance and surprising disturbance in language and syntax that thrills me in Goldensohn's work, like Melville's "happy toothache"-there are live roots in these lovely, sometimes painful moments, which almost violently win my attention. He's always been, as a poet, a lyric storyteller who writes with clarity, and of course, a brilliant, musical sense of how often a profound solemnity invades our lives, even at this very moment of plague, for example.
