From Library Journal:

Bierds's third volume of verse shows the same focused extravagance of detail that characterized The Stillness, the Dancing ( LJ 1/89). As in earlier poems, historical figures are brought into the contemporary world, fully realized by the evocative power of language. Here, however, retrieval of the past is carried out along with careful study of present things. In "April," images of spring plowing conjure up an electron microscope's revelations: "the lines of DNA wander . . . / as the contour lines for autumn oranges/ swerve in unison past boulder pods." From such intricate juxtapositioning of past and present, Bierds, like the scientists who seek the Titanic in "For the Sake of Retrieval," creates a new world, "each simple shape/ loved and awash in the landscape." With sinuous imagery and wide-ranging concern, these poems move steadfastly toward rich and complex ends. Recommended.
