Now, in his fifth full collection of verse, that reputation is both confirmed and consolidated. These are thoughtful, substantive poems that may make the reader smile - and reflect. There are autobiographical poems about the poet's childhood, elegies for the recent dead in American arts, extended metaphors on suburban existence, and a long section of poems in which the poet courts, wins, then loses the Muse. Both in voice and performance, Breakdown Lane is a thoroughly consistent and engaging volume"--" ;
