What We Have Learned About The Pineal
-- Table of Poems from Poem Finder®

From Publishers Weekly:

A Nobel Prize-winning chemist and Cornell professor, Hoffmann writes poems fusing a scientist's predilection for precise observation with a poet's lyrical, transformative vision ("Coral outcrops . . . an empress angel fish darts off--reef reflexes meet the finned intruder in this underwater Gaudi cathedral"). Yet the pineal gland, gulls diving for jellyfish and the traumatic infancy of cute-looking koalas do not delimit his poetic concerns. There are searing autobiographical pieces tracing his childhood in Nazi-occupied Poland (he emigrated to the U.S. in 1949) and his relationship with his stepfather in New York. "In Need of Mending," ostensibly about fences, maps the geometry of friendship and hostility. "Opening a Drawer," an apt, humorous meditation on folding shirts, is fundamentally a tender love poem. Despite its share of pretentious or pedantic misfires, this is an impressive collection of serendipitous rewards.
