This volume brings together the poems from Robert Flanagan's earlier books: Body (1970), Incisions (1972), Gravity (1978), Ground (1990), and a number of new poems. We find a continuity, a flow between the various poems and the different books. There is a consistency in language and style, a marvellous coherence. The individual poems are self-contained and yet echo other poems. Each book folds into the next. There is an urgency apparent here, an organic process at work.
