Read Detailed Book Description

“These poems soar with stunning lyric grace and yet we feel their earthly and epic gravity along the lengths of our bones. The beauty of wreckage, Rachel Eliza Griffiths tells us, holds beauty. From wreckage and from beauty, she reinvents, revises, and rejuvenates the Icarian tale, balancing perfectly the weight of desire upon the rare edge of thinnest air. From the frayed threads of the mythic, she reweaves the familiar into the strange, the oft told into the wholly uncanny. The Requited Distance

is a breathtaking performance.”—Eric Pankey
