This impressive collection begins with 16 new poems, followed by nine to 15 each from five previous books, 1980-1992. A master of narrative and elegy alike, Lea (The Blainville Testament) writes mostly in an everyday voice about ordinary people in common situations. The 400-line title poem, about a wood-cutting accident, limns the narrator's entire small world. Lea imagines a life lived backwards, from death to the womb ("The Light Going Down); in "Horn" he envisions his father, even while facing death, summoning his sons, as he did when they were young, home from play as usual to bed or dinner by blowing a conch shell horn, not ringing the strident porch bell.
