Cheers! to poet Charles Bernstein whose All the Whiskey in Heaven is a rousing selection from thirty years of work. The Ballad of the Girly Man" begins with an elegiac couplet-"The truth is hidden in a veil of tears, The scabs of the mourners grow thick with fear"-before shuffling the sadness offstage and bursting into a wry singson: "So be a girly man, & take a gurly stand. We've had comic poets before, like Swift and Pope, but never a comic poet to so lovingly make fun of the whole serious poetic enterprise.

Yet despite the distinctive differences from poem to poem, Bernstein's . Bernstein's highly anticipated new work, All the Whisky in Heaven, will be published in Spring 2010 by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux.

Modulating the comic and the dark structural invention with buoyant soundplay, these challenging works give way to poems of lyric excess and striking emotional range. The last 1/3rd of the book was scattered with some much weaker poems and lyrics but has one of the best lines in poetry.

Not for all the fire in hell Not for all the blue in the sky Not for an empire of my own Not even for peace of mind. No, never, I'll never stop loving you Not till my heart beats its last And even then in my words and my songs I will love you all over again. Poems by Charles Bernstein : 2, 17. prev.

The first collection of Charles Bernstein’s poems not published by a university or independent press marks a consummate outsider’s admittance to the mainstream. I can think of a lot of things art might be for, including - taking a cue from All the Whiskey in Heaven - documentation, commemoration, celebration, satire, theory mongering, genuine sentiment. But Bernstein refuses the responsibility of having the last word on this century’s most vicious and problematic tragedy, instead quoting Ozymandias again with tremendous resonance to end his own poem: The lone and level sands stretch far away. I’m not sure whether art is up to the task of dealing with 9/11 and its aftermath.

This is poetry for poetry's sake, as formally radical as it is socially engaged, providing equal measures of aesthetic pleasure, hilarity, and philosophical reflection.

A NEW RETROSPECTIVE OF ONE OF AMERICA'S MOST INNOVATIVE POETS All the Whiskey in Heaven brings together Charles Bernstein's best work from the past thirty years, an astonishing assortment of different types of poems. Yet despite the distinctive differences from poem to poem, Bernstein's characteristic explorations of how language both limits and liberates thought are present throughout. Modulating the comic and the dark structural invention with buoyant soundplay, these challenging works give way to poems of lyric excess and striking emotional range. This is poetry for poetry's sake, as formally radical as it is socially engaged, providing equal measures of aesthetic pleasure, hilarity, and philosophical reflection. Long considered one of America's most inventive and influential contemporary poets, Bernstein reveals himself to be both trickster and charmer.

Charles Bernstein has gotten a bad rap as a language poet impossible to understand, but that is not the truth. Most of his poems are quite easy to understand. We've had comic poets before, like Swift and Pope, but never a comic poet to so lovingly make fun of the whole serious poetic enterprise. If you want serious, read Heterosexual: a Love Story. Heterosexual: A Love Story. The closest in spirit to Bertsein might be O'Hara. Berstein's poem written as a complaint letter by a rider to the chief of the subway system is worth the price of the book alone.
