The title of the American poet John Matthias’s second English volume suggests both continuity and change. The first two sections continue the idiom of Turns (1975) and include many poems on English themes. The two concluding sequences chart voyages across the Atlantic; they are as ‘extravagant, eclectic, polyglot, and original’ as his earlier experimental poetry, but more accessible in their narrative and humour.
