From Library Journal:

Bly is a poet, translator, and author of the current best-selling Iron John ( LJ 11/15/90). This collection of prose poems, drawn from work done over the past 30 years, is organized into five sections: "The Point Reyes Poems," "Family Poems," "Object and Creatures Glanced at Briefly," "Love Poems," and "Looking for the Rat's Hole." In "The Dead Seal," Bly praises the seal's whiskers, smooth skin, and slanted eyes as if offering a prayer and asks the seal to "Be comfortable in death" as it had been in the ocean. The poems in "Objects and Creatures Glanced at Briefly" offer a fresh look at an oyster, a potato, a caterpillar, and a grain of rice, among other things. Bly often expresses delight in the delicate fabric of nature, as when he comments on a bird's "balanced, disciplined, airy . . . rows of feathers." These are not melancholy musings but joyous, inspired meditations that demonstrate Bly's talent for conveying in the simplest language the richness and complexity of the universe around us.
