D. M. Spitzer's collection unfolds a poetic engagement with the Greek Odyssey within the framework of the ancient epic: twenty-four books and a well-known and complex narrative architecture. The poems inhabit a range of voices and perspectives drawn from both the world of Homer's Odyssey and from that of the poet-as-reader.
Each poem in A Heaven Wrought of Iron offers a fresh approach to--and in collaboration with--the Odyssey by weaving together translated fragments from the Greek text with a sequence of poems drawn from a close reading of and an imaginative, intellectual engagement with the Odyssey.
