About the Author

Elizabeth T. Gray, Jr. is the author of the poetry collections Salient and Series India, and the translator of Wine and Prayer: Eighty Ghazals from the Diwan of Hafiz and Iran: Poems of Dissent.

Reviews

A remarkable work of poetry. Everything invoked is both crystal-clear while yet retaining its crystal mystery. There is a magical accession to the delineation of links and relationships developing in the poem, even the physical connections (real or imaginary) when moving from soldier to soldier, woman to soldier; poet to soldier, woman/poet to lover.--Nathaniel Tarn, from the afterword
Extraordinary: Gray concludes this striking work by praying that the goddesses will do what humans never could: just stay.--Heather McHugh

--Dana Johnson
