Eleanor Wilner's sixth collection creates a mythology that sees a planet too small and a universe too immense to support humanity's illusions of importance. Her poems become a "choral work of the imagination" in which science is re-envisioned, gender assumptions challenged and beliefs rigorously questioned. As the old gods are reabsorbed into the modern world, Wilner discovers new insights into culture and the human psyche. "I have always treasured Wilner's poetry for its visionary amplitude and revolutionary intelligence."-Alicia Ostriker Eleanor Rand Wilner is the author of six books of poetry and the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. She lives in Philadelphia, teaches at Warren Wilson College, and is a lifelong activist for civil rights and peace.
