"This is not what is true, merely true." Images of intrusion, aggression, martyrdom, achievement, pilgrimage move in and out of these poems as they move in and out of our dreams, their relation to the lived life real but imponderable.

For me this stands with Arc of Grief at the top of her work.-- Alan Williamson
