Miss Levertov's work has always been notable for its technical perfection - her unique control of verbal tome, line patterns and structure - but "Relearning the Alphabet" contains an impressive new dimension: an enlargement of scale, and an assurance, that have led her to poems of greater length and even deeper social commitment than she had attempted before. Many of her themes may still be personal - the loss of a friend's child, a snail's vision, a flea from a living dog, her responses to nature - but more are now public: the Vietnam War, Biafra, ghetto riots, the battle of the Berkley People's Park in which she took art.
