The Book of Nightmares, a long visionary poem in ten parts comprised of seven strophes each, was first published in 1971 and is regarded as Galway Kinnell's masterpiece. Robert Hass states that it has been Kinnell's ambition all along to hold death up to life, as if he had it by the scruff of the neck, and keep it there until he has extracted a blessing from it. Denise Levertov concludes The Book of Nightmares encompasses within the breadth of it both political rage and satire, and the most lyrical tenderness, and holds them together: coheres.
