Description

Complex, intricately textured and polyphonic, this sequence of five long poems enacts the fulfilment of poetry and philosophy in one another. "In Schiller's terms, it is the elegiac longing for unity of soul and world, here expressed in some of the most beautiful poetry of 1986." -- Ronald B. Hatch, University of Toronto Quarterly

Editorial Review

"This is a disturbing book about great tensions, about the results of frustration, about the mild, real sunlight of winning, through pain, some sort of understanding.”— Christopher Wiseman, Calgary Sunday Herald

"An interesting blend of the passionately terse and the compassionately expansive."--Donalee Moulton-Barrett, The Canadian Book Review Annual
