Summary expansion
According to Knopf pre-publication information stapled inside front wrapper, this Updike collection is based on the theme of facing nature--on many different levels, including death, aging, insomnia, and dread. Other poems reflect on nature in the form of the seasons, planting trees, being buried, shadows and rain, pain and accumulation, and art and travel. "The final poem is a walking tour of each of Jupiter's four major moons, a scientific excursion that leads into the extravagant precisions of the Seven Odes to Natural Processes, a lyrical yet literal celebration of some of the earthly forces that uphold and surround us."
