I was not a big Barbaro fan. In the Derby, my money was on Lawyer Ron (and I kept following that financial black hole until his retirement, unfortunately). But after the Preakness, like every other horse fan (and millions of non-horse-fans), I got caught up in the drama of Barbaro's surgeries, seemingly miraculous recoveries, and final decline.

No one has written about race horses as beautifully and evocatively as lyn lifshin has done in this book on the tragic career of Barbaro and in her paean to the immortal ruffian, The licorice Daughter: my year With ruffian.

Lyn Lifshin, Barbaro: Beyond Brokenness (Texas Review Press, 2009)

I was not a big Barbaro fan. In the Derby, my money was on Lawyer Ron (and I kept following that financial black hole until his retirement, unfortunately). But after the Preakness, like every other horse fan (and millions of non-horse-fans), I got caught up in the drama of Barbaro's surgeries, seemingly miraculous recoveries, and final decline. And after the publication of The Licorice Daughter a couple of years ago, I figured there would eventually be a Barbaro book from Lyn Lifshin. It happened a lot faster than I expected. And I am, and have been for a very long time, a big Lyn Lifhsin fan.

The biggest problem with the way the outside world relates to Lifshin's writing (this is not, I stress, a problem with the writing itself) is that, like Bukowski, Lifshin can feel rhythm and word choice in her blood. It's either second nature to her or she spends a lot of time revising details that would make your head itch to think about. But when it comes out of the mill at the end of the day, it all looks as if it were dashed off on the back of a cocktail napkin with no thought whatsoever.

"weeks before the
Derby, Barbaro's
days were like
any other, a
stable like
any other

Periwinkle light
behind the spires
at Churchill Downs"
("As Blossoms Rose and Faded")

Yes, there are things I'd suggest changing, were they presented to me at a workshop (most notably ending lines with articles, which drives me up the wall), but I wonder if they're not part of the facade of naivete. For what seems dashed-off is quite nicely rhythmic; "PERiwinkle LIGHT beHIND the SPIRES at CHURCHill DOWNS" suggests a horse walking across the paddock cobbles at Churchill, in my mind. (Possibly, given the smaller stress on the "win" in "periwinkle", a horse on three legs.) And more, so few poets are capable of taking a prose-like interest in a subject and stretching it across a book of poems. While this is not narrative poetry (in the poems that can stand on their own, anyway), it is a collection of lyrics that function as narrative poetry, and that is a fine thing indeed. At the end, then, you have to come at a book like this from two directions. Does it succeed as lyrics, and does it succeed as a narrative? The first question gets a qualified yes; there are a few pieces that one wouldn't be able to pull out and send to a magazine without surrounding pieces for context, but there aren't many of them. As for the second question, absolutely. This is as complete a documentation of the trajectory of Barbaro as any biography, and a more concise one to boot. A must for horse racing fans. ****

Barbaro was to be the next Triple Crown winner like so many before him.
His life story from birth to death and everything in between.

You will need lot's of kleenex to read this book. You will read lots of comments from people that had anything to do with the GREAT BARBARO......
you secret
Just like her subject, Lyn takes on life -- her poetry -- with an intensity that is thrilling, scary, and heartbreaking. If you love life and horses and can handle the tough parts with the sweet parts, this book of poems will reward reading and re-reading. Lyn is one of our most prolific and wonderful poets.
godlike
For anyone who was moved by the gallant and heartbreaking saga of
Barbaro, Lyn Lifshin's Barbaro:Beyond Brokeness recreates in poetry both exquisite and passionate the legend of Barbaro. I can think of
no other poet who writes so movingly about race horses.

I read through the poems that start with the very young Barbaro with delight. I read little poetry, so I can not judge the poems with any authority. How ever as I went through the story of those brief 3 years I was thrilled again by the talent of this gutsy thoroughbred through his Kentucky Derby win and then to the moment of injury when all came to fear and dismay. I began to hope all over again when he was being thought through the worst of it in the autumn until that sad night in January when he began to experience great discomfort. He was a great one who had too short a life.

Lyn Lifshin chronicles Barbaro's life, from his birth in a stall in Kentucky, his awe inspiring win in the 2006 Kentucky Derby, to the injury that ultimately led to his death. As one who followed this amazing horse and fell in love with him I cannot praise Lyn enough for this labor of love. This collection of her poetry will make you smile and bring you tears and you will understand poetry in motion. What an artist's brush does to canvas,Lyn does with words to create the special personality, strength and beauty of Barbaro.

There is no "best book written by Lyn Lifshin"...Ms. Lifshin outdoes herself with each successive work! I WILL concede that Barbaro: Beyond Darkness IS one of my favorites. It is fluid, thoughtful and (as always) is a layer-on-layer experience for the poetry lover.
