This volume presents Bartusek's last major poem-sequence consisting of nineteen poems, each based on the beliefs and ritual associated with the nineteen months of the Aztec calendar. In writing about `the anguished loneliness of the Aztec human existence against the background of a pitiless age,' Bartusek reveals `an atmosphere very much like that in which twentieth-century man is living.' These are powerful poems which conform Graham Martin's earlier verdict.
The book concludes with a contrasting selection of short poems which again display Bartusek's fine lyric gift.
