Brilliant and elegiac. . . . A writer always conscious of the shadowy borders where myth and history—his own and Western civilization's—mingle.
Marilyn Hacker

Written in the spaces between otherness and brotherhood, Otherhood combines traditional lyricism with experimentalism, passionate engagement with cold-eyed investigation, and personal details with a depersonalized distance to create a new poetic synthesis.
