"The theme of surpassing the verbal, the tangible, is reinforced in the collection's arrangement. The opening section explores the physical and psychic shocks we endure as mortals bound to this earth, but as we read, the attention gradually shifts to a search for an antidote to loss, first through the solace of family, history, and the long dead, and finally through willed acts of the imagination."--Jacket.
