Description:


"Set in the immediate aftermath of 2017's Hurricane Irma, the most catastrophic storm to strike the British Virgin Islands, Richard Georges' Epiphaneia stands as a collection of rich, transcendental verse. Beyond the loss and devastation that such a natural disaster brings, Georges' ideas span beyond the physical world, asking us to consider the ways in which families and communities come together amidst such tragedy. Blood runs under the earth. A father will instruct his daughter to the hills where their ancestors are buried. A flying man opens a door in the sky. Children play in the twisted roots of a landscape both dangerous and triumphant. Constantly attuned to the devastating power of nature and where the body, too, is 'a precarious house', these poems are hymns to the resilience of the human spirit. Georges locates in the negative space of aftermath both the ghosts of history and the mythic beginnings of a yet unlived, rejuvenated world." -- Page 4 of cover.
