Read full description of the books:
This book was published about twenty-five years ago. It's divided into three sections and includes poems that are very traditional: they have regular meter, line length, stanza size, and poetic devices (end rhyme, alliteration, etc.). They also tend to be very personal, if not exactly confessional.
I think that the strongest poems are those contained in the third section of the book. The title poem is the only one in section two, as it is a fairly long poem on its own, and begins, presumably, on the night of Pinsky's conception. Death is a common theme carrying itself throughout the poems in the book, but not every poems deals with it explicitly.
I'm not sure if I can see or hear any echos of William Carlos Williams in this book, but it won the prize names after him. It's an obvious choice for those who prefer traditional poetic styles and themes, though, and this is a pretty good book of poems by a former poetic laureate of the country.
