Traditional Southern themes (a sense of land, eccentric families, motifs of sexual initiation and suffering, and Protestant pieties versus modern spiritual doubts) are the foundation of these compelling introspective narratives. ("I know I sound/ Like just another Southern storyteller telling/ . . . about family, memory, history, old men, time.") In these 28 poems about heresies of mind and body, Hummer (born in Mississippi) blends superb lyrical expression ("She had a face, her last/ Years, like a washed-out field") with a concern for varieties of human psychology and the nature of reality. Much like Dickey, he reaches through what is unknowable to a common speech that will consecrate experience and make it whole. Frank Allen, Assoc. Dean, Continuing Education, Allentown Coll., Center Valley, Pa.
