“These poems grab both mind and heart.”

“In poems simultaneously contemporary and timeless, this collection imaginatively probes the existential crises underlying the Antigone story. The poems less directly about Antigone somehow become mythic by association. The analysis is thoughtful; the language is taut, meditative, and resonant; the imagery and music are subtly insistent. These poems grab both mind and heart.”
