Featuring translations of several works as well as original poems, this poetry compilation explores Greek mythology in addition to Roman and Byzantine history, art, and travel. The myth of Actaeon is re-imagined in three ways throughout the book and concludes with a retelling of the Byzantine folk ballad “Constantine and Arete.” In this debut collection, real and imagined people and places also crop up: the lonely figure of the poet Cavafy in Victorian Liverpool and God in postwar Paris as well as the landscapes of Europe and North America.
