From Library Journal:

Novelist, editor, and translator as well as poet, Auster questions all that limits fulfillment in this selection of poems spanning nine years (1970-1979). The conflict in these mystical, Blakean poems is between death of the spirit and potentiality, between "the many who are here/ though never born,/ and those who would speak/to give birth to themselves." Each poem journeys outward through baffling "white spaces" to find what a soul loses in failed psychic relationships and "a word equal to the silence inside." Randomness precludes communication, yet "something is happening" that forms "a part of this journey for the length of time that it endures." To follow a poet as he tries to penetrate the infinite is a challenge; this is yearning and difficult poetry.Frank Allen, Allentown Coll., Center Valley, Pa.
