Cold missiles and a rain

of embers accompany the men

who slide like shadows into the city

faces mud-smeared

stones for teeth no eyes
who slit the throats of everyone

they encounter until breaking down

my door they drag me into the darkness

that floods the corridor

and lock me in an icy chamber

―from "THE LAST HOURS OF LAÓDIKÊ, SISTER OF HEKTOR"

Book Description:

Published in hardcover by Harcourt, 2004, 0-15-101095-1

From the Back Cover:

"A major poet of his generation... Mr. Christopher's poetry is not merely extraordinarily good, but seems to me altogether in a class by itself." -- Anthony Hecht Since his poetry began appearing in the New Yorker when he was in his early twenties, Nicholas Christopher has been praised as one of America's most important poets. Crossing the Equator combines Christopher's best work from the past three decades with a section of new poems. The transformative voice of Crossing the Equator displays Christopher's dazzling power and luminosity. Praise for CROSSING THE EQUATOR"One of our most inventive writers? To read [Christopher’s] richly honed and sensuous work, which has so much tensile strength, is to visit other worlds and then return to our own, disturbed by time, but also refreshed and reawakened." --Edward Hirsch, The Washington Post Book World

"[A] dreamlike and highly visual collection, where punctuation is often scarce and the plausible . . . can quickly turn surreal." -- The New Yorker NICHOLAS CHRISTOPHER is the author of seven volumes of poetry, five novels, and a cultural history of film noir. A regular contributor to the New Yorker, Esquire, the Nation, the Paris Review, and other notable magazines, he is a professor in the School of the Arts at Columbia University and lives in New York City.
