The title alludes to Noahs ark- to the rainbow (arc-en-ciel in French)- and by extension to Arkansas and hence to Kansas, where the poet was born.A work of singular beauty and resolution. It takes its legitimate place with the great works of the century of like kind, Ezra Pounds Cantos, Louis Zukofskys A, Charles Olsons Maximus, and Robert Duncans Passages.

Its own specific character is, however, brilliantly singular.Robert CreeleyA late harvest of seeds sown by Blake, L. Frank Baum, the Bible, and Zukofsky, all in a new architecture, a wholly new voice, and even a new chemistry of words and images. It is for those who can see visions, and for those who know how to look well and be taught that they can see them.Guy Davenport
