It is yet another virtuosic showcase for Charles Wrights acclaimed descriptive powers, and also an inquiry into the nature of description itself, both seductive and dangerous: a virtual world/ Unfit for the virtuous. Like his previous books, Sestets is seeded with the lyrics of old love songs and spirituals, and there is always room to connect his highly polished poems to the world where most of us lead mundane lives (Miami Herald). Soaring and earthy, lyrical and direct, Charles Wright is an American treasure, and his search for a truth that transcends change and death settles finally on the beauties of nature and language: Time is a graceless enemy, but purls as it comes and goes.
