From the back cover: "Pierce-Arrow, Susan Howe's newest book of poems, takes as its point of departure the figure of Charles S. Pierce, the allusive nineteenth-century philosopher-scientist and founder of prgmatism, a man always on the periphery of the academic and social establishment yet intimately conjoined with them by birth and upbringing."
