A wonderful collection. Profound and moving, but readable from beginning to end, and back again. He works wonderfully with form, and has a sense for rhythm and rhyme lacking in too many modern poets. To choose one poem from many, 'The Swing' is heartbreaking, and has provoked lively dissention among friends about just how bleak or hopeful his world-view is. His verse is intelligent and powerful, yet gentle. Buy it now.
