This collection of short poems is divided into four sections and includes the poet's experience as an Exmoor forester, a sequence set in the Sabine hills of central Italy, the theme of erotic friendship, and a mixture of anecdote and satirical epigram with compacted memories of travel. The poems portray the opposition between the desire for openness and the desire for isolation while demonstrating the power of language to illuminate reality.
