An Eighth Day View:
In "The Wages of Goodness" Michael Blumenthal explores the costs and the wages of three ruling obsessions in our lives: love, grief, and virtue. Reacting to a tendency in contemporary poetry to avoid such "sentimental" and abstract notions as goodness, Blumenthal succeeds in making ideas live through the particulars of each poem.
