Summary
"Douglas Canfield surveys in unvarnished but poignant style the violence that seems endemic to humankind, reaching from his own experience into well-known violent acts of the contemporary world, and on to those of history and mythology. At times, with great effect, he calls in phrases from other poets past and present to strengthen his own powerful arguments. From poem to poem the poetry flows in a rich and swelling current, in free verse or sometimes in iambic form that does not emerge as iambic until examined - which is to say as the finest kind of iambic rhythm / [by] L. D. Clark, novelist, author of A Bright Tragic Thing, The Plains and other novels"--Page [4] of cover
