Synopsis: Very dreamlike, and evading all narrow description; wreathed mythology, enclosing a single story of sacrifice and resurrection; for there is but one story to be told on earth, and it is one of memory and fragility and inevitable farewells; and most of all of yearning, of the building of wings and the rewarding of self-sacrifice and the overwhelming power of dreams; for there is mythology and the human spirit, and there is pure reason and natural truth, and there is the abstract and the particular, and the individual and the world; and the mystery of the human experience calls for something more than a simple narrative and consistency of morals; so the reverie of life is here expressed as a tangled fantasy, as a desperate searching, as a multitude of perspectives and voices; at once cosmic and sentimental, these poems form a sustained prayer to the baffling indifference of nature, and the longings that motivate love and the desire for lastingness, and the inexplicable soul?s sad beauty, that enables us to accept death and the loss of ourselves.
