Poetry. ETRURIA is a diverse collection of poems featuring found language, ancient Latin, sitcom stars, even Marianne Moore, unified by a threading of ideas and meditations that span the ancient and contemporary. There is a pleasure found in these deep and engaging poems, and readers will find themselves returning to their favorites again and again.
