The End of Atlantic City

Unexpected juxtapositions lay the groundwork for striking imagery in this collection of highly original verse. Moments such as the chapter-by-chapter sonnet translation of The Iliad allow the urban and the historical to play off of each other as classical allusions marry with witty, contemporary poetry. Using language to reveal surprising truths, the line between the real and the imagined becomes blurred.
