$15.00

A Heaven Wrought of Iron: Poems from the Odyssey offers a fresh approach to — and a collaboration with — the Odyssey by weaving together translated fragments from the Greek text with a sequence of poems drawn from an imaginative engagement with the Odyssey.

D. M. Spitzer’s collection unfolds within the framework of the ancient epic: 24 books and a well-known and complex narrative architecture. The poems contained in A Heaven Wrought of Iron inhabit a range of voices drawn from both the world of Homer’s Odyssey and from that of the poet-as-reader.

About The Author

After pursuing graduate studies in political thought, philosophy, and classics, D. M. Spitzer completed a Master of Fine Arts in Writing at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

His current projects include a hybrid work called Genealogy of the First Person that treats some of the principal figures of the Book of Genesis as paradigmatic of a mode of consciousness; mousika, a collection of two poetic sequences: the first, “quartet,” takes up a conversation with T. S. Eliot’s masterwork “Four Quartets,” while the second section, “a symphony of psalms,” works from an imaginative engagement with Igor Stravinsky’s “Symphony of Psalms;” and a performance-poetry project, involving movement and costuming, called “kata-strophe,” which features three transfigured poems (Goethe’s “Erlkönig,” Rilke’s “die Blinde,” and Ovid’s final scene of Orpheus & Eurydike [Book 10.56-61]).

Mr. Spitzer resides in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania with his wife and their three children. He is currently a doctoral student in comparative literature at Binghamton University.
