These poems reveal a quest for transcendence with a strong theological impulse, though without appeal to dogma. Centered in the world of human relationships, particularly childhood and family, Daniel Tobin's poems exhibit both lyric and narrative intensity, and are distinguished by their descriptive clarity, formal dexterity, and musical complexity. His is a poetry as passionate in its intelligence as it is in its emotions.
