This collection of lyrical and narrative poems establishes Bruce Bond as one of the finest mid-career American poets. Bond's poetry speaks to themes as varied and timeless as the American Civil War, Narcissus, Abraham and Isaac, and the paintings of Caravaggio and Edward Hopper. Anthony Hecht says: "There is a genuine warmth, a real drama and imaginative wit in these accounts of the life of the mind, the senses and the body's mysterious ways."
