A poem in five books, of circular narrative design, titled with the Greek name for Homer, which simultaneously charts two currents of history: the visible history charted in events – the tribal losses of the American Indian, the tragedy of African enslavement – and the interior, unwritten epic fashioned from the suffering of the individual in exile.
