This richly illuminating collection should help secure Schwartz the renewed appreciation he deserves.This new collection of Delmore Schwartz's work reads like a literary CV of Failures," a powerful testament to a life shaken by the Great Depression. As we navigate the long road to national recovery, we can use his writing both as a mirror and as a compass.Excellent writing.One of the young princes of American literature in the middle of the 20th centuryThis is a consistently intriguing volume that devotees and neophytes will want on their shelf.[V]ivid details of lived experience are thrust throughout Schwartz's writing. Readers are left reeling among elemental features of the world, physical and immediate yet drenched as well with historical and literary ambience. Once and for All serves as an ideal introduction for the curious reader. The brilliant, doomed Delmore Schwartz was one of his generation's strongest creative talents, but his imaginative work has been sadly neglected. Once and for All is the latest and most comprehensive collection of his work to date and the volume takes on a very valuable task: it attempts to give Schwartz's provocative and multifaceted literary legacy its long-deserved due. Delmore's genius survives in the sound of his words, in his hypnotizing lines.For Schwartz poetry was ongoing and unstoppable, a process as compulsive and endless as the mariner's telling of his tale.What complicates and enriches Schwartz's comedy is, I think, a reaching out toward nobility, a shy aspiring spirituality, a moment or two of achieved purity of feeling.A genius... one of the greatest writers of our era.I wanted to write. One line as good as yours. My mountain. My inspiration."
