Reviews - What do our customers think?
Resonant and resolute  Dec 19, 1999
James Tate is not a surrealist; he is a lyric poet with an imagination. Because the imagination has been on trial in this country for the past decade, people label anything the least bit odd "surrealist" when they don't understand what they're trying to confront or when they're afraid of what the imagination, when presented by someone as brilliant as Tate, can unleash.

The title poem is one of many effective, poignant, and tender poems in this book. While not Tate's funniest or strangest collection, Distance from Loved Ones is emotionally charged and completely without pretense. It contains half a dozen of the best poets written by an American in the past 20 years.

Small "tate-ers" for a poet of his caliber.  Nov 27, 1998
James Tate's most recent offering, "Distance from Loved Ones," hit bookstores recently, after much hype and anticipation. Up to this point, I had suspended my judgment on the pernicious poet, but now I no longer straddle the fence on this issue. The title poem promises insight and melancholy, but quickly strays into a graphic erotic narrative involving his last several pets (all of which died mysterious deaths). The associative peregrinations he offers attempt to travel the road between the heart and the mind but never make it past his throbbing libido. I understand that he is a "surrealist," but this slab of perversions is much too real for me. Tate is an unholy cross between Neitzche and Andy Griffith, and frankly, the only way you may possibly glean something from this tour de FARCE is if you don your standard issue goth trenchcoat and hit the local coffee house.
