It evokes Weimar culture, Hitlers rise to power, and the beginnings of the persecution of the Jews. The poem is a triumph of technique, a simultaneous vision that proceeds by quotation and collage, catalogue and caption, prose as well as verse--a myriad staging of historical realities through the poets intense and bitter scrutiny of the particulars of time and place.

It affirms the struggle and the memory of a generation upon whom the doors of living memory are now closing and it extends concerns which have long haunted Tom Paulins poetry: the relation of art to war and to questions of national identity, the search for peace and for a shared civic culture.
