The Meaning of Flight
Best known as a novelist, this poet uses fiction-writing techniques to create memorable settings and characters, and a narrative voice that ranges from contemplation to irony. Darker forces of alienation also intrude in the form of preoccupations about belonging and dislocation, belief and doubt, rigidity and movement, and time-honored questions about how the real world is changed by the attempt to capture it in art.
