Kinsella says of it that he is offering close readings of a few notable works in the form of a type of response suggested by Coleridge for the appreciation of a poem. These are primary readings, taking account of textual detail, method and structure. The texts are taken as initiating an act of communication, and the reading is offered as a completion of the act, the poem read "at its own pace". Kinsella takes two sonnets by Shakespeare, "The Tower" by W.B. Yeats, and Eliot's "Prufrock" poem and offers a close reading on these lines, offering an introduction that explains what he is about.

"One could spend hours untangling the skeins of etymologies and historical allusions Kinsella has woven together in these poems."
