This diverse, vibrant book is modeled, like Joyce's Ulysses, on Homer's ancient epic, using it as an allegorical scaffolding for the poet’s own experience as a Black man in contemporary America. The author’s language runs the gamut from the vernacular to the Elizabethan; everything from pattern poems, free verse, prose poems, sonnets to parodies of Mother Goose. Remarkable in scope, every poem stands on its own while arranged in chapters that lead the reader through an epic journey of human trials—poverty, desire, injustice, racism—and ultimately to a transcendent awareness of beauty, joy, love and personal triumph.

About the Author:

One of Colorado’s best known performance poets, SETH has collaborated with countless musicians, poets, actors, dancers and other performance artists in a never-ending quest to render poetry more entertaining, and thus more accessible, to general audiences. Over the years he has garnered several awards for his pioneering efforts to meld spoken word with the other performance art forms As a member of Open Rangers, SETH produced and directed a series of Poetry Theater productions combining poetry with music, theater and dance. He was a member of the critically-acclaimed performance art trio Jafrika, recognized by the Rocky Mountain News as “among Denver’s finest cultural offerings.” His experimental short stories have appeared in numerous literary publications. He has been a member of Denver’s National Poetry Slam Team and currently performs with Art Compost & the Words Mechanics.
