Inhaltsangabe: The theme of the elegiac sonnets, satirical epigrams, and formal lyrics of The Portals of Sheol can be best summarized by the Psalmist: ?As for man, his days are like grass.? With wit and wisdom, Bryce Christensen punctures human pretentions and vanity, whether of arrogant scientists or hedonistic consumers, reminding us in poems like ?Ultimate Grammar? that ?our is, our are, our am?all melt away / To was and were, the markers of a grave,? and that such darkness can yet be vanquished by ?the Easter dawn.?
~ Paul Lake, Editor of First Things and winner of the Porter Fund Award for Literary Excellence for Another Kind of Travel (University of Chicago Press).
