''The UC Press edition of the works of Robert Duncan has been eagerly awaited by readers and critics for two decades since the poet's death, and this collection does not disappoint. It contains everything one could want to have in a reader's edition of the poet's work. This volume is especially critical because it contains Duncan's earlier poems, which are almost uniformly difficult to find ; it's publication will cause a serious reconsideration of Duncan's career. Quartermain's meticulous editing has produced a book that will be hailed by scholars and general readers alike. It is a stellar achievement.'' (Stephen Fredman).
