A collection of 21 poems that rip through the world-weary, grieving daily life of a poet and a man. As the original Odyssey by Homer, Franz Wright, reports more than with the dream language with the language of poetry the story of his life, the relationship to his father, to his wife and the world inside and outside of him. With delicacy he interns himself in those worlds sometimes overwhelmed by nostalgia and sometimes illuminated with an underglow of joy as in Elizabeths Eyes or quiet happiness as in THE CATFISH. As a wise Telemachus he walks, reflects and expresses a sovereign balance of mind in unseen supervision, between time of ingestion and time of departure: undisturbed, unafraid, as all things are passing--the unknown bird spoke: who will remember? And why should I care? I had my time. I got to be here.
