"The initiation into pre-verbal, pre-conceptual consciousness is a common modern obsession, as are its Waysóchildhood, folklore, eroticism, foods, animals, and plants. What is uncommon, in Charles Simic, is the level of imagination and gnarled wit broughtİtoİthe quest. Fine lines are everywhere in these poems: the bird's 'chirp, likeİaİburning candle / Onİaİwindy threshold'; or, inİaİbelle dame sans merciİpoem, 'The migrant's fire of her long hair / Harm's way she comes and also the smile's round about way. ' And yet, one is often disappointed by hollow rhetoric ('Its ritual and secret life / Where I wishİtoİbe anointed') and by the fashionably automatic sanctification of the trivial ('The Garden of Earthly Delights'). This is clearlyİaİbook everyone should read; equally clearly, it falls short of the greatest irrationalist poetry in concentration and commitment."
