He reveals himself in his poems as a master of concision, of the well-placed word that penetrates the human heart. Over two hundred and twenty-five poems included here show his technical brilliance as well: in short- and long-line poems- in his autobiographical Byways- in (American) French poems and their traslations of his own devising. For readers coming to Laughlins work for the first time, this collection will be a sea of undiscovered riches, and for longtime devotees, a chance to ply once again the well-charted waters of his Poetry.
