A very good selection of Donald Hall's poems, but one of them, "No Deposit No Return" puzzles me. I read it years ago when it first appeared in "The Alligator Bride", and it seems that it has been revised. In Stanza 6, Dillinger's "final utterance" is changed from "a single dirty word" to " a single nasty word". In my opinion, the original "dirty" was better. Why was the change made?

Then, Stanza 7 was omitted:
"Chinese Gordon sat alone
When the Mahdi broke the door;
His sword flashed twice; he stood like stone
Until they speared him to the floor.
Two he killed before he died
Flanked him dead on either side."

The omission was not a mistake. The original Stanza 9 began:
"It only hurts me when I bray,
Chinese Gordon said, and died."
Those two lines have been replaced in what is now Stanza 8:
"It only hurts us when we bray,
Paleolithic G-men sighed."

Why is Chinese Gordon cut out? Because the account of his death is not historically accurate?
Neither are the Barbara Frietchie references. There are no notes of explanation.
I am not as familiar with Hall's other poems, but "No Deposit" I know by heart. I wonder how many other poems were revised--and why.

Donald Hall, who has recently been named poet laureate of the United States, has been compared to New England poet, Robert Frost. Much of his poetry has a "familiar" feel to it, though not derivative. He speaks as a child when describing the Sleeping Giant, a small mountain in Hamden, CT, where, if one is in the right spot, the head, chest and feet of the "giant" can be imagined. He grew up in Hamden, CT, but his grandfather's home in the New Hampshire mountains helped shape his view of life, as well. In "Old and New Poems" his changing viewes of life over the years are seen.

In the poem "1934" he reminds the reader of life during the Great Depression, and the fears it engendered.

His poetry reminds readers of ordinary day to day activities. He writes of his father and grandfather reminiscing "In the Kitchen of the Old House", where "his early death grew inside him, like snow piling on the grass".

"Old and New Poems" is very readable, and often autobiographical. I loved reading it.
