Poetry. Drama. In this work, Todd Swift pursues his exploration of how art, fantasy, and desire can console, or inflame, the heart—and how, against the vastly more powerful claims of reality, the imagination can do no more than offer its impulsive, fragile and poignant gifts. Love and lust, fear and trust, hope and despair are tangled.
