    Compared to Sixty Selected Poems, I d say this is an inferior collection Although a few pieces in here come close to the sublimely cosmic pessimism of Brennan s excellent Substance, they are mostly lesser manifestations of his thoroughly bleak perspective I Envy the Deer nicely contrasts the pretentious solemnity of funerals with the unceremonious decay of a wild animal s carcass in the woods At the Cemetery Gates offers a pleasantly chilling take on the question of former lives.For the m Compared to Sixty Selected Poems, I d say this is an inferior collection Although a few pieces in here come close to the sublimely cosmic pessimism of Brennan s excellent Substance, they are mostly lesser manifestations of his thoroughly bleak perspective I Envy the Deer nicely contrasts the pretentious solemnity of funerals with the unceremonious decay of a wild animal s carcass in the woods At the Cemetery Gates offers a pleasantly chilling take on the question of former lives.For the most part though, Brennan ssupernatural horror based material reads like the worst of Poe s verse predictable takes on redundant themes, awkward rhymes and, at times, miserably generic.Where Brennan thrives, however, is in works that reflect his naturalistic pessimism without excessively relying on a clich d sense of the macabre The persona of The Cold Cliffs, the finest work in this collection, dreams of abandoning a futile life of continually fluctuating emotion and becoming one with the mute, oblivious stone of a sea side cliff Along with Epitaph for Earth, these poems succeed by virtue of how firmly they deny sentimentality by indicting all that is superfluous and superficial in human experience.To the contrary, there are a few flashes of humor here The Collector reveals how quickly the value of a recently deceased collector s possessions outweigh the memory of his life in the eyes of relatives Likewise, Death of a Minor Poet gives another sardonic look at a man who is despised evenin death than in life Having read these poems, I think Brennan might have been aengaging poet if he had frequently allowed laughter into his darkness as opposed to his usually dirgeful tone.Still, if only for the masterpiece of pessimistic poetry that is Substance, I would recommend purchasing Brennan s Sixty Selected Poems before this collection
