Peck writes primarily in free verse, though he does, in his words, "plait phonic elements across both accentual and syllabic grids."
This is especially true when it comes off less as pedantry than as a passion of mind, as in Peck's case.
Peck won the Prix de Rome for his second poetry collection, The Broken Blockhouse Wall (1978), and then moved to Zurich, where he trained as an analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute. After more than a decade of publishing silence, Peck published three volumes of poetry in four years. Speaking to the relationship between his analytical work and his writing, Peck has said that "Jung's psychology has deepened my respect for the gap between framing an intuition in words and actually taking in what the larger personality would have one incorporate."

How many other essential long poems have been published since 1960? Ezra Pound's Late Cantos? Peck's review appears at:
