I believe I read this book in one attempt. Despite that I did, I found his poems descriptive and inspirational. Some of them were short while others were long. But all of them were quiet revealing. Since I was able to read this book in one attempt, I found it very fascinating. The best poem was Prospero Goes Home.
I found Gilbert late in life, and might never have found him at all if it were not so easy now to read a review online, click over to a poem, and click over to the library to reserve a book. Gilbert seems to think that what poets do is arrange their lives so that poems can happen to them. He doesn't write poems about little things, but about moments of insight or understanding. He doesn't write many poems. The ones he writes hit hard. Here is one that sent me off to reserve a copy of this book: http://www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/16872
