These poems are vigorous and of firm rhythm and sound, meant to appeal to the eye, the ear, the mind and the heart. The poet makes unequivocal statements about old age and the family, and the love poems are sensual, with the intensity and feeling of young love. The section entitled ‘And Other Tongues’ displays his unusual mastery of foreign languages, with poems in French, Italian, Portuguese, and Sicilian (with English translations).
