In THE INVENTION OF EYES, poet Richard Londraville has explored the dramatic narrative, as shown in sections titled "After the Curtain" and "Mythologies," where characters from fiction and myth speak directly to the reader. He has also written of more personal experiences in "Literati" (including poems about authors he has known: writers John Updike, Stephen Spender, and Jeanne Robert Foster), "Occasionals," "Fauna and Flora," and "Sounds." Finally he has attempted a clear and unsentimental examination of dissolution in the ultimate section of this work, "At Last."
