The poems in this collection reflect the interests and obsessions of the author. The problems inherent in time, nostalgic recollections of a personal past, descriptions of places with magical overtones, and fanciful inventions that tease the mind are all part of this poetry. Its language presses heavily on the additional meanings that can be embodies in poetic words as they describe or suggest images. It uses the language of symbol and metaphor in new ways, asking the language to bend and curve as the poem and the ideas it suggests are revealed.
