It seems to me that you shouldn't review a book of poems based on being bitter about the guy not being nice to you. And, what he reportedly said about vision . .Maybe he said it, maybe he meant it, maybe he was just saying it to annoy you. Doesn't matter to the literature in any case. LOL
Strand uses language to purely, succintly, metaphorically, lyrically, and beautifully describe every day life: marriage, writing, love, home, and death.

Yes, a poet brings to his work a certain personality, and we can't fully separate the two. But in the end, poets are vessels and it is the poetry we are interested in--if not, we'd be psychologists.
