Merwin's new book of poems is expectedly dazzling and profoundly of a piece. It is concerned with the people and the countryside of the relatively unknown part of southwest France with which he has been associated for many years. Part lyrical, part narrative, these poems are the work of a master.

From the Back Cover:

"Merwin has always been a contemplative poet, drawn to the lessons of the natural world and the rigors of unmediated vision. He has also been a romantic poet, heroic in his quest for the depths and intensities, the powers and possibilities of consciousness. Best of all, he has been a surprising poet, continually slipping the bonds of anyone's easy admiration." --J.D.McClatchy, The New Yorker
