It is said Dante wrote his Commedia as a means to reconcile himself with the death of his beloved Beatrice--years after the fact.

In Fiery Messengers the poet descends to the demi monde in search of his soul in the person of Jacqueline, his mother. The texts that follow are encounters with the muse in various phases, some in memory, others in dream & fantasy, a few as apparitions.

The exchanges between mother & son form the crux of a journey from darkness to flashes of lightning.

In this latest work Peterson asserts the primacy of one poetic vision--that of Homer, Virgil, Dante, Pound & Olson. Let men stumble and go forth.
