I like this book quite a bit: it's got a quiet but ferocious spirituality to it and a muscular musicality. But it's long--and maybe that says something about my own expectations for a book of poems, but by the time I got to the title poem--a long 20 plus page sequence--I felt the book had already ended. That's not to say section 4 isn't lovely: it is! It followed section three which seemed to drag.
