The World of Ten Thousand Things gathers The Southern Cross (1981), The Other Side of the River (1984), Zone Journals (1988), and a new group of poems, "Xionia," into one volume, allowing us to see Wright's work of the past decade as, in essence, one long poem, a meditation on self, history, and the metaphysical that is among the most ambituous and resonant creations in contemporary American poetry.
