This new collection comprises four short volumes originally published by Kinsella's own Peppercannister Press. The first section, Songs of the Psyche presents a sequence of twenty-five poems. The following section, Her Vertical Smile consists of a single four-hundred-line poem on the theme of violence, order, and music. Out of Ireland, a metaphysical love sequence, and St. Catherine's Clock, which includes Kinsella's writing about family history and the bloody social history of the early nineteenth century, complete the collection.
