Ten poems spanning fifty years, are the companion to Carruth's Collected Shorter Poems, recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry. "The work here seems to break every rule of modern poetry, yet it succeeds.... This volume displays the huge range, both in theme and form, of a poet who pushes his art to its limits, then beyond."--Publishers Weekly starred review.
