Poetry. Ross Talarico's THE REPITLIAN INTERLUDES attempts to ask the sort of questions Milton and Dante posed, but replaces their gods with the gods of science and technology. Who are we? Why are we here? Where are we going as a species? In one long poem, Talarico takes a look at the species as we "evolve scientifically and devolve humanistically" [calling to question] the design between science and art"-Richard Anderson. Talarico "writes like a latter-day Wordworth, postulating in his prose a re-vision of poetry's purpose, and offering in [this book] his prelude"-H.L. Hix. Recipient of the Mina Shaughnessy Prize and the Lillian Dairchild Award, Ross Talarico is a writer of poetry, novels, personal essays, and more. He is a Langston Hughes poet/Scholar.
