Miss Rich's sixth book is her finest, strong and contained, the poems emblems of fury, love, sadness, loss. The strongest, most passionate is "Shooting Script," a very long, fragmented poem - not as the publisher announces, "a new poetic form": that has some of the best lines Miss Rich has ever written - "An ear filled with one sound only" or "Somewhere my body goes taut under the deluge, somewhere I am/ naked/ behind the lines, washing my body in the water of that war." "Images for Godard" is also exceptional, full of adventure and invention. Then there is "A Valediction Forbidding Mourning," an intriguing journey into the acceptance of death and in a way the wisest poem here. Altogether an outstanding collection. (Kirkus Reviews)
