The first half contains some of Bidart's most luminous and intimate work: its range is as wide as its unifying theme is specific. Here are lyrics of heartbreaking directness and candor, including poems about the art of writing, Eros, and the desolations and mirror of history (in a spectacular narrative based on Tacitus). The second half of the book extends the overt lyricism of the opening section into even more ambitious territory -- "The Second Hour of the Night" may be Bidart's most profound and complex meditation on the illusion of will, his most seductive dramatic poem to date.Hide synopsis
