"Like much of Jeffers' previous poetry, this collection is "all crusted with blood and barbaric omens," but here the voice of the poet is also the voice of the prophet. Jeffers' poems of personal violence reflect a world in a death struggle, and he stands with his generation on the brink of descruction, but still resolutely proclaiming a world's new beginning." - dustjacket flap.
