Rate this:
In poet Brian Culhane's The King's Question, fragments of the ancient past emerge from contemporary life to reveal rich and resonant correspondences. So the glow of a writer's desk lamp evokes the torchlight of Viking raiders at Lindisfarne; a father's scattered library summons the lost Library of Alexandria; the voice of a psychotherapist echoes the murmur of the Delphic oracle. With skilled craft, erudition, and daring intelligence, Culhane grapples with profound questions of time and existence, while the gods, as always, deny any certitude.
