An Dantomine Eerly
As the Irish-American poet Dallin lays dying, he recalls the surreal geography and traumatic events that lead him to the end. An absence in a wind-beaten house suggests a past but somehow still-looming tragedy; vacancy fills a ghostly barroom and the campus of a condemned university; city streets and desolated forests are populated by no one except the formulations of Dallin's own mind. The ailed poet and his beautifully haunting wife Aisling flee an obscure political persecution that culminates in her planned murder. The impact of her death afflicts Dallin in ways he cannot comprehend and spirals him into his meeting with the mythic celestial escort, An Dantomine Eerly."
