This poetry collection, based on recurring motifs from The Odyssey, takes a journey toward a realm that opens space within awareness. It offers a wide scope, permitting the emergence of new thoughts unhindered by margins and considerations spun into configurations that churn against time and reality. Writing with open yet misty forwardness, poet Philip M. Butera offers modern interpretations on themes of the classic epic poem as an expedition of the mind, honoring Platos suggestion that poets create from pure inspiration.
