This book has produced a trilogy dealing metaphysically at times with the area of human relationships one would consider deeply painful at moments, ecstatic at others. Its material is intensely emotional while drawing at the same time sharply intellectual observations on the human condition. Although the poems are deeply personal, they deal with universal themes that will touch everyone who encounters them.
