From Library Journal:

These selected poems reveal an important American poet's impressive array of dramatic powers. Selections from Heart's Needle (his Pulitzer Prize-winning volume), small press poems, and excerpts from the intriguing "Fuehrer Bunker"dramatic monologues from the top members of Hitler's Third Reichare included. In new poems, which use the gentle surrealist paintings of DeLoss McGraw as vehicles, Snodgrass returns to himself as subjectthough not in his former confessional mode. Here we find an especially good marriage of poet and painting and an imagery that is startling: "My hat leaps up when I behold/ A rhino in the sky;/ when crocodiles upon the wing/ Perch on my windowsill to sing/ All my loose ends turn blue and cold;/ I don't know why." Rosaly DeMaios Roffman, English Dept., Indiana Univ. of Pennsylvania
