I find it passing strange

that my Pelican Dreaming: Poems 1959-2008, which I consider to be a major work, sinks almost without trace whilst my Lunch Poems, a slight chapbook, continues to garner favorable reviews.

Perhaps it's the attractiveness of only having to peruse 20 pages against some 400+.

I think that's exactly right. The richness of yr Pelican is going to take some time to be absorbed.
