Incidental Eclipse

Joseph Donahue


Talisman House

Poetry. "'Hints and symbols die out. / All's actual now.' These lines seem to contain the germ of Joseph Donahue's massive, mesmerising new book, INCIDENTAL ECLIPSE. Something is going under, something is coming to the surface; each is documented by two voices, one speaking in italics. This sequence confirms Donahue as one of the major American poets of our time."—John Ashbery
