Part distilled observation, part imaginative act, part spiritual expedition, the lyrically-idiosyncratic poems in Startled Night plumb the struggle of integrating the shadow, of coming into personhood and love--through the life processes of encounter and crisis, also through the chiaroscuro of art, image, and word. The decisive moment is perpetual, which is why the story cannot be finite.
