"It is both a collection of poems and a single poetic epic, forming a philosophical and political statement on the nature of language, perception, and reality. The subject matter, though, is down-to-earth: amoebas, stones, and factories; fear, sea urchins, and mental institutions; sand, sexuality, and song. The words and images of it recur in ways reminiscent of Christensen's other works, but here is a younger poetry, wilder, and crackling with energy. The complex use of mathematical structure in it is faithfully captured in Susanna Nied's prize-winning English translation."--Jacket.
