My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Merwin’s third collection shows promise for what follows. His use of language harks back to Anglo-Saxon beat lines and alliteration, and is a rich music. Many of the shorter poems are quite good. Many of the longer poems seem to need paring down as they show his love of language sometimes overcoming his art.
