These poems (mostly prose poems) reimagine characters from mythology, folktales, spiritual texts, Eastern teachings, plus a few more contemporary figures (Spinoza, Picasso, Freud). There's a kind of "California" quality to much of this, and the project of rethinking archetypal figures has been done elsewhere, but the book's sincerity and clarity recommend it.
