Summary

To the poet’s quest for immortal vision, A Hellsmouth for Orpheus offers the longing of human desire. Raw but discreet, deliberately sensual, evoking an elusive authority, this book-length poem turns to the love of song to rescue life from annihilation by the common-place. As Appelbaum writes,

      nature is observed

      when eros

      disturbs the breath

      in heights

      with questions

      in the mirror

Purveyor of local geography and lover of mountain hikes, David Appelbaum holds a degree in philosophy. He is past editor of Parabola Magazine and currently, publisher of Codhill Press.
