Ommateum: With Doxology : Poems
A reissue of the first published work of A. R. Ammons, the Sublime of his generation (Harold Bloom). In A. R. Ammons's debut, published fifty years ago in a rare edition, his penetrating poetic insight was already obvious. These poems are terse and evocative, dramatically conveying the fear of identity loss, the appreciation of transient natural beauty, the conflict between the individual and the group, the creation of false gods to serve human needs.
