David Lehman’s life as a poet, as a scholar, as an educator, has been one turned outward on the world, characterized by generosity and an overriding passion for the written word, by an unrelenting wonder and a simple desire to understand the complicated celestial mechanics of poetry. Poems in the Manner Of continues Lehman’s poetic project, gathering paradise, one grain of sand, one universe, one wildflower, at a time.

Thank you for the wonderful review -- astute, insightful and generous. I love thinking of the book as both "a grand map of misreading" and "a pheasant disappearing in the brush." That latter phrase is one of Stevens's definitions of poetry, and I love it. As for the former, why don't I have a copy sent t hard-to-pleas Harold and see what he says.
