Jacket design from an etching by Mary Oppen. "George Oppen in this book honors himself and American poetry. The long title poem for instance creates a world that is the product of brooding sight. What Oppen sees he seizes. The singularities of one poet's life reveal a darkness redeemed, embody love like complex stratographic layers, the minerality of what lasts, the metaphor of the generations. This is Oppen's fourth book since the early Thirties; few poetic careers in this time have absorbed so much and remained so identifiable." (from the jacket). Bookseller Inventory # 2751
