I was very touched by this collection. The union between the story Herculaneum and our shared connection to loss and suffering, and the chaos that accompanies the two, for me made these poems transition between a sort of detached ancient familiarity and modern alienation (which is all too often familiar as well). Haunting and lovely at the same time. But there are these wonderful moments of sweetness and beauty as well, something shared but also quite special: experience that we know is unique to a time and moment, but something we all intuitively understand. I loved it. Highly recommend. I’m eager to read more.
