In this deeply philosophical and highly inventive new collection, John Hollander, the distinguished author of numerous books of poetry, offers profound yet playful meditations on the reflective mind and on the words with which we come to know the world. In forms as varied as sonnets, songs, and ancient odes, he muses over the ways we use (and misuse) language as "we grasp the world by ear, by heart, by head / And keep it in a soft continuingness."

Here, too, are striking verses about the passage of time as recorded by the movement of light and shadow across a surface, whether it be the face of a clock or the enclosed walls of a Hopper painting. Throughout, Hollander delights us with mirrors, palindromes, and strange and surprising reversals that keep the mind ever alert with the challenge "to make words be themselves, taking time out / From all the daily work of meaning, to / Make picture puzzles of what they're about."

Donna Seaman has written of John Hollander, "His wise and robustly complex poems span the mind like stone aqueducts or canyon-crossing railroad bridges-awesome works of knowledge and craft, art and devotion." In this exciting new volume, Hollander shows once again the reach of his poetic imagination.
