Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393325040, Paperback)

"Sacks brings a uniquely compassionate heart and an enduring poetic genius to all that he has to say."—Robert Creeley

Peter Sacks traverses morally charged landscapes in poems reminiscent of Rilke and Celan. Through the lens of Peter Sacks's actual journey from a strife-torn South Africa to a haunted and spiritually frayed America, Necessity travels from remembered heights unblemished by time's weight, through deserts laden by the debris of our mad dreams—progress, conquest, salvation—to arrive at the waters of communal memory, values, and love.
