“The sheer heft of the two volumes only hints at the vast poetical output of Ammons, a variegated array of poeticules and epics, intimate confessions and scientific hymns, wordplay and wonderment.”

After reading this collection I will have to say I like Ammons' shorter poems best. This collection has more medium to long poems, some of which are also excellent, but his short poems are the best.

Only thing I read from A.R. Ammons, his last book of poems. Lots of clever lines and two word stanzas. Generally didn't do much for me.
