When looking through ratings of poetry, I think everyone should keep one thing in mind: good poetry is ridiculously difficult. So, if I rate this book a three, it's really like a four compared to the fiction books. Weighted.

Wunderlich is a master of subtle imagery, combined incredibly detailed depictions. The problem is, his imagery is often too subtle, his depictions often too detailed. After finishing any one of these great poems, I thought the same thing: "I liked it. That was brilliant. But it was kind of minutious. And it could mean anything." Having said that, they poems are, intrinsically, good. I'm eagerly awaiting Mr. Wunderlich's next developing work.
