Summary: "The impending death of his elderly father leads the narrator of this book-length poem back to the particular mystery of the sacramental self, the terror and the necessity of bearing witness. Emotionally exposed, Dennis Sampson's powerful eulogies and meditations testify that the courage to die is matched only by the courage to remain with the dying."--Jacket.
