    I could read the two novels left by poet Byron Herbert Reece over and over They are so well plotted and their characters are brushed onto the page like paintings He was not yet out of sleep It clung in wisps to this thinking The fog of sleep in the crags of the mind The indistinct landscape of the mind I am lost in this valley there is fog here The creek curving like a crooked index finger When Danny lay on his back and looked straight into the sky it did not look far If he looked at one star long enough space circled in a widening funnel from the star to his eyes As the sky whirls around in its circle so do the events of this novel Don't be afraid of anything but a man says Danny's Uncle Enid remembering a sad event in his own past Man is the meanest animal of all And yet the novel will end with hatred banished and love prevailing

    35 stars Reminded me of a Shakespearean tragedy Lots of foreshadowing Familial entanglements Betrayal A touch of homo eroticism
