I picked this up in a mini-survey of 'deep image' poets. Many of the poems were difficult to access because they were deeply concerned with contemporary politics and the historical moment when they were written; I had a better time with the poems that dealt with death, artistic renewal and other universal themes, where the imagery could find more space to resonate in this 2008 reader.
