Tightly bound, both in form and in content, the poems in Logan's latest collection illustrate his great control of the English language. While there is some humor (for instance, in the opening poem, "Moorhen," which is literally about a hen), most of the poems reflect a deep, rich, and intensely Anglo-Saxon history. Shakespeare, Coleridge, and Darwin are only a few of the figures called up in the examination of history that these poems undertake. For all their skill and craft, however, the very classical and distancing style in which these poems are written makes them somewhat difficult to approach.
