First published epic poem by John Neihardt

The first published long poem by America’s finest epic poet, The Divine Enchantment is replete with the metaphysical insights and creative accomplishments that would later soar to unparalleled heights in A Cycle of the West and Black Elk Speaks. Springing forth from John G. Neihardt’s fascination with Hindu mysticism and myth, the epic poem relates the vision of Devanaguy, who became the mother of Krishna, the incarnation of Vishnu. This enchanting poem reveals the youthful exuberance of Neihardt as well as the brilliant visionary writer to come, concerned with the intricate dance of the divine and daily life and determined to use the poetic form to tell of the momentous events and cosmological themes that affect us all.
