The title of this s book refers to the prime oneness that Martin Heidegger identifies as earth, sky, divinities, and mortals-the unity of four that fluctuatingly frames existence. To speak of this undulant frame is to use language; and Language, according to Heidegger, is the saying of Being. In this book, verse seeks to reflect the undulance of language; the waves of tentative rhythms and ambiguities collapse, then, into divagation on (1) mimesis vs. metaphor and (2) anagoge: the collapse is then further particularized by anagram-here a calculating play of letters that links the Reformation to the small market (selling shoes, for example).
