Summary
In all of the poems Hollander illuminates the fluid nature of physical and emotional experience, the connections between the simple things we encounter every day and the ways in which the meaning we attribute to them shapes our lives. Like the harmonious coming together of bandstand instruments on a summer afternoon, he writes, most of what we come to know in the world is "A dying moment / Of lastingness thenceforth / Ever not to be." Throughout this thought-provoking collection, Hollander reveals the ways in which we are constantly creating unique worlds of our own, "a draft of light" of our own making, and how these worlds, in turn, continually shape our most basic identities and truest selves. -- Publisher's website
