This chapter discusses the new poetry collection of Ben Belitt. It explains that throughout his career, Belitt has never neglected to confront the world's body, appropriating its elements to his own purposes. It suggests that though Belitt may legitimately question all acts of possession and the possibilities of ownership, his new collection might encourage readers to acknowledge with gratitude the bequests he has made to them.

Keywords:   Ben Belitt, poetry collection, possession, ownership, poetry criticism
