    READ ´ Half light Collected Poems 1965 2016 Half light Collected Poems 1965 2016A little over 700 pages Half Light isn't a collection that can be finished easily in a few sittings I found reading much of the early poetry to reuire a great deal of patience and I'm not sure that the uality of those poems merits the attention that Bidart consistently demands from his reader By contrast his later work as a whole becomes less affected and bombastic making the poems palatable if not necessarily approachable In contrast to many poets Bidart's strongest collections—Star Dust Watching the Spring Festival and Metaphysical Dog—are those he wrote towards the end of his life In these it seems as though he has finally figured out how to juxtapose the personal against larger social and philosophical contexts without boring the reader
