What is there to say about Merwin? He is THE poet of our time. I won't begin to talk about this collection because any review I give will come off hopelessly effusive, embarrassingly prostrate, and ultimately incoherent. He may be single-handedly responsible for my own inability to write because any time I try I become pee-shy. I feel him staring over my shoulder like a stern father/priest whose silent criticism is saying "shit of get off the pot".
