Campbell's first collection is composed with her painter's eye, "turning thought to flame" in an intense scrutiny of the hidden desires at the heart of dally life, revealing the way we forge our identities within the eternal pattern of birth, aging, and death. Her "narrative" poems stay in the reader's mind -- a grandmother uses religion to transform her sexuality; a sister's gift of a dictionary tests "the limits of language"; a daughter's world is shattered when she finds her father's cache of pornography. Throughout the book, there is a strong presence of the poet herself as she writes of her family and her lovers.
