Journal of the Fictive Life is the record of a disturbed man who turns the rather awesome battery of his intelligence inward on his own mind, seeking the source of his disturbance. But the source is, simply, his humanness; here also is the source of reconciliation, as the Journal ends with the birth of Nemerov's son and a hopeful pointing toward the "magical poetry" of Shakespeare's Last Plays. Nemerov's latest work, The Blue Swallows, is a worthy successor. It has the variety, wit, and technical skill we have come to expect; it is also full of wisdom and gentleness: .

In Journal of the Fictive Life Nemerov attempts to fuse these elements by plunging into confession and self-analysis written in a cross between poetry and prose.
