Poetry, no matter if self-consciously or now not, has consistently thrived at the paradox of the far away within the immanent and the opposite within the self; as such, it's pushed by means of either a metaphysical starvation and a resistance to metaphysical simple task. Hidden assets of being animate the language of the close to, simply as close to issues beckon from an elusive and inarticulate distance. Bond revalidates the function of poetry and, extra extensively, of the poetic mind's eye as either types for and embodiments of a transfigurative procedure, an imperfectly mimetic but ontological engendering of awareness on the limits of a language that must—if cognizant of its mental, moral, and epistemological summons—honor that which lies past it.
