"The Guardians" is an elegy for Manguso's friend Harris, written two years after he escaped from a psychiatric hospital and jumped under a train. The narrative contemplates with unrelenting clarity their crowded post-college apartment, Manguso's fellowship year in Rome, Harris's death and the year that followed--the year of mourning and the year of Manguso's marriage.
