Michael Schmidt's new collection of poems advances on his earlier work both in formal and thematic range. The highly decorated style of his previous poetry has given way to a greater thrift and acerbity. He has left behind the elaborate imaginary landscapes and, even in the allegorical poems, entered a world of social contingencies. In a sense, this is his first collection as an English poet. The American models are no longer apparent.

The book is divided into three parts: the allegorical poems, the title sequence which charts the development of a relationship, and a final section of lyrical poems.
