It is said Dante wrote his Commedia as a means to reconcile himself with the death of his beloved Beatrice--years after the fact. In Fiery Messengers the poet descends to�the demi monde in search of his soul in the person of Jacqueline, his mother.� the texts that follow are encounters with the muse in various phases, some in memory, others in dream & fantasy, a few as apparitions. The exchanges between mother & son form the crux of a journey from darkness to flashes of lightning. In this latest work Peterson asserts the primacy of one poetic vision--that of Homer, Virgil, Dante, Pound & Olson.� Let men stumble and go forth.
