Working within the framework of a classic poetic form, Jonathan Locke Hart embarks on an extended meditation on our rootedness in landscape and in the past. As sonnets, the poems offer innovative variations on traditional themes and formal structures. Throughout, Hart deftly combines his intimate knowledge of European culture and history with North American settings, producing poems that distill centuries of experience into a few brief, penetrating lines.
