Description
The poems in this book are easily recognizable as the world of one of our most interesting and influential poets, but there is an extra dimension justifying a claim for the whole as a unified poem. Each of the forty-five sections plays against the others, and although wide-ranging and with many moods and changes of tone, "Dark Harbor "is all of a piece.
