Callings (Poets, Penguin) : Carl Dennis's books of poems have won praise for being "not only pleasurable but substantial and important" (The New York Times Book Review). His eleventh collection, Callings, is about vocation in the largest sense, the work that we believe gives our lives meaning, and the challenges that come in defining such work and in doing it well. The poems approach their subject from a variety of perspectives, now suggesting the ways in which any calling we choose is a compromise with limitations, allowing the pursuit of only a small portion of our commitments, now suggesting ways in which we can make our calling express our individual purposes. If a calling in some poems provides an alternative to the disorder of the world, in others it offers a means to shape the world as we are shaped by it. As the poems speak to each other, they form a dialogue of attitudes that makes room for both frustration and achievement, a dialogue that includes us and takes us beyond ourselves.
