This book is recommended by Harold Bloom (on his Western Canon list) and the author seems to have a troubled life followed by a suicide. But the poems didn't seem all that interesting or compelling to me. He had a weird sort of love for his sister, though I couldn't tell from this collection whether she was still alive. A majority of the poems used blue images.
