Sills gathers together poems from four of O'Brien's early books and combines them with later work, forming a selection from 1960-1999. O'Brien writes, "The poems dance their dance of stillness and motion. The issue is a quiet, patterned music, animated, disciplined, ecstatic; not closure, but recognition." This new edition provides the reader with the best introduction to O'Brien's work, a poet hailed as a modern master of the lyric form and a poet of genuine significance in the American canon.
