Parallel Lives by Michael Lind
Michael Lind’s poems rather stand apart from most of what’s published these days, one reason being that his range of experience goes beyond the purely academic or literary into the realm of domestic and foreign policy. His reading, furthermore, puts him in a congenial relationship with Latin and Greek literature, witness his brilliant use of alcaic meters in the poem “Maragheh and Alamut.” Everywhere in this singularly distilled book you will find instances of special astuteness with respect to content, form, and imagery.”
