A remarkable collection about love, art, nature, and family, this book of poems observes with painterly precision the commonplaces of experience, creating landscapes of emotional range and intensity. Biography, history, and geography are interwoven in potent new forms: a lover s fragile caress, the skills of a dentist, the death of irony celebrated by crows, and a green tree burning in a red room. Novel experiences and ancient paramas embolden the second and third sections of the book while two concluding sections offer expansive, rehabilitated vistas of a world that is haunting and new.
