Overview

Like the work of the European poets who have nourished him, Constantine's poetry is informed by a profoundly humane vision of the world. Throughout these poems, the personal life, with its own joys and suffering, asserts itself against a world whose characteristic forces are dispiriting and destructive. Nine Fathom Deep shows how all personal life and poetry written from it, deal with the realities of social and political life in the here and now, assert themselves, fight for survival, and actively seek to make a world in which humane self-realization would be more and more, not less and less, possible.
