M. L. Rosenthal's poetry has been called "great in the sense ...we reserve for the mighty dead" (The Nation) and "adventurous...blessed with humor and wisdom" (The Times Literary Supplement). "His rhythms are flawless, subtle and keep us close to his feeling," writes Library Journal. This new volume includes the title sequence "As for Love," with its elegaic play of memory involving remembrances of China and the absorption of an elderly Chinese poet's musings over his changed world. Also included are the shorter sequence "The Blonde on the Beach" and individual lyric poems, as well as satiric political verse, parodies, the uninhibited and experimental "A Choice of Titles," and translations from the Catalan of J.V. Foix, the German of Rainer Maria Rilke, and the Chinese of Zhao Ruihong.
