Back cover copy

In the language of and for our interior lives, Dunn makes poetry a communal act between the poet and his readers. Dunn's landscape at the end of the century embraces the spectrum of urgencies and obsessions that we live with and for. It's a landscape that we share with citizens and spies, revelers and mourners, women who weep, men who keep secrets, and especially with the poet himself.

Review quote

"Behind Stephen Dunn's obsession with what he calls the ordinary lies an immensely complicated and delicate search for understanding and- I think- for peace... He is a poet of wisdom, and he is a healer and a teacher... The music is perfect as the art is hidden, and some of the poems-'Turning Fifty,' for example-are unbearably beautiful. He is a magnificent poet." -- Gerald Stern
