About this title: A superb long poem by the contemporary master of the form, "Glare" consists of two sections: "Strip" and "Scat Scan". The poem demonstrates, yet again, why A.R. Ammons's poetic voice is a national treasure: by turns cosmic, self-inflating, self "de"flating, eloquent, intimate, bawdy, comic, precise--and always unmistakably his own.
