My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a lovely books a artifact, which may become more the way of things to come as eBooks take over the basic function of texts. The juxtaposition of black and white art with Wright’s sestets, the latter captured from his original typewritten manuscripts including smudged keystrokes, makes for an aesthetically pleasing art work.

And further, Wright’s poetry is real, rich in imagery, and fine in word choice, with a sense of form and willingness to play freely against that form.
