In this collection of persona poems, Diana Pinckney explores the art of others and regards the wolf as the ultimate other: "Wolves speak to me from beauty, strangeness and vulnerability, representing both the beast and the innocent. Their voice is the music of the wilderness.... As for the beasts and the innocents these poems speak of, this writer feels there are many that are sometimes two-sided-like the god, Janus-and hopes that they will be discovered by the eye and the ear of the reader."
