To Sleep, To Love brings together direct and contemplative poems which read like pages in a novel. Individually fashioned to the required precision, each poem projects its full brilliance, especially when placed in the context of the narration. Love can be venerated or cursed but it remains a singular force freeing the imagination to fathom and comprehend paradoxes. No joy exalted, no pain idealized; here speaks a voice whose boisterousness has turned to tenderness. When we read these poems we discover the serenity of lyricism.
