This rich collection of poems is gathered from over a dozen previously
published works, in addition to several new pieces. These poems have
appeared in such publications as: Esquire, Poesie (Paris), California
Quarterly, The Madison Review, The Baltimore Sun, Chicago Review, Twigs,
Florida Quarterly, Beloit Poetry Journal, Measure and other magazines.
David Bromige, in his introduction, says: "These poems comprise a story
that is all Gifford's, testimony that anyone, haunted by these cultural
forms, may be pleased to incur as if his or her own. This collection, made
at age forty, not only sums up the early years, but clears the ground for
further creation".
