Shiny cover, a little shelfwear. \nAs we are told rather vaguely in the introduction, this new volume contains those poems not included in Levine's three most recent books "for one reason or another." One might wonder whether there isn't a certain amount of groping here for an excuse to publish a new book. After all, a certain number of alternatives have been exhausted: Levine already has a Selected Poems (1984) and a New Selected Poems (1991). Yet none of this results in any inconsistency. Levine manages to compact scenarios and images both radically ordinary and strange within a workmanlike, evenhanded style. And here we have some examples of his best work: among the many elegies (in particular, "For the Poets of Chile"), there is the "Doctor of Starlight, " with its vivid hospital scene ("I heard the starched/ dress of the nurse behind me"). The "patient" has a star removed from his body only to reveal "another perfect star" beneath. R. pp. 109. 7.8 x 5.1 x 1 inches.
