Alice Oswald's award-winning and highly acclaimed volume Memorial("wryly ingenious," said the New York Times Book Review) portrays fallensoldiers from Homer's Iliad. Falling Awake expands on that imagery--defininglife as a slowly falling weight, where beings fight against their inevitable end.Oswald reimagines classical figures such as Orpheus and Tithonus alive in anEnglish landscape together with shadows, flies, villagers, dew, crickets--allcharacterized in tension between the weight of death and their own willpower.FROM "VERTIGO"let me shuffle forwardand tell you the two minute life of rainstarting right nowlips open and lidless cold all-seeing gaze
