HEGEL'S FAMILY by Keith Waldrop

Fiction. Vivid elements evoke remembered scenes or imagined constructions from history, dream or chance. Unlikely characters show up. A 15th century Dutch painter walks the streets of Providence; a young girl goes to sleep in a dark room; Charlemagne appears in a mythic terrain of sheer language. This is a distinctive poet's prose, precise and congenial, capturing improbable moments and spinning the mind into new realms of possibility.
