Summary:
"The Descartes in the title of Allen Grossman's long-awaited new book is the great figure of philosophy, but also refers to all persons insofar as we are discovering the world and must think of it on our own. Grossman's poems interrogate the one world and one life given to us, philosopher and poet alike, blending the comic and tragic."--BOOK JACKET.
