This selection of poems spans the fifteen years 1968-1983, and excludes Lykiard's first full-length book of poetry (Robe of Skin Allison and Busby 1969) which covers work written between 1958-1968, and also all work from two later full-length collections, Milesian Fables and Cat Kin which the author feel stands apart from other poetry written during this period.
Like all Lykiard's poetry, this collection is controversial, direct and compulsively readable.
