14 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern communications suggest the world is the same everywhere; but language goes on being divisive. The 'Babel' of Peter Porter's title is not a Tower wrecked by builders unable to understand one another, but rather an editorial or academic 'Chair' from which we are addressed by delegates, conferenciers, social engineers, and custodians of art. In this embattled state, the poet is forced to become a Cassandra of the market-place; or a keeper of private diaries recording dreams, states of mind, and symbolic situations. Language is put on the couch to freely associate with the end of the millennium, by this most modern-minded and clear-sighted of poets, in his latest collection of 50 new poems."--BOOK JACKET
