    Fights to the Death, in Shakespearean Verse! 
    (Author's Narration) 
    Hailed as "an exemplar of epic poetry" (San Francisco Review of Books), LeRoy recalls the majestic visions of Dante and Homer as he pits the divine power of prophets against the earthly power of presidents and kings. 
    1. Obama's Dream 
    About to hand over the keys of empire to one Donald J. Trump, Obama's dreams are troubled, but two great angels enter on a divine mission to save his soul, and with it, all of humanity. A journey of revelation follows, even to the throne of God! 
    2. Elijah 
    Israel. 9th-century BC. Jezebel has killed the true prophets of the Lord, and Elijah must flee her wrath. 
    But he is not alone. Embraced by a shapeshifting goddess, counseled by a great angel, he is empowered to call down fire from Heaven! 
    This 12-part epic poem relives the spectacular miracles of the great prophet as described in the Old Testament—raising the dead, commanding the rain, calling down fire from Heaven—but along with all this, the author weaves a rich thread of mythological themes. 
    Raunchy yet reverent, this visionary tale takes wing in the poet's pen, the poet's voice! 
    3. Jezebel's Lament 
    She's a killer of innocents, seducer of priests, and all-round nasty piece of work. At least that's what History would have you believe. 
    But now, three thousand years after her reign in Israel, Jezebel tells her side of the story. Not "harlot queen", she insists, but "virgin bride", not murderer but moderate, and certainly not the bad guy in her struggle with Elijah. 
    The result is a saucy yarn, weaving invention around Scripture's narrative. 
    “Absolutely wonderful and hypnotic narration, the author's voice flowing with the narrative song of his words.”

    WINNER OF THE 2018 T S ELIOT PRIZE FOR POETRY 
    Hannah Sullivan's debut collection is a revelation - three long poems of fresh ambition, intensity and substance. Though each poem stands apart, their inventive and looping encounters make for a compelling unity. 'You, Very Young in New York' captures a great American city, in all its alluring detail. It is a wry and tender study of romantic possibility, disappointment, and the obduracy of innocence. 'Repeat until Time' begins with a move to California and unfolds into an essay on repetition and returning home, at once personal and philosophical. 'The Sandpit after Rain' explores the birth of a child and the loss of a father with exacting clarity.  
    In Three Poems, readers will experience Sullivan's work with the same exhilaration as they might the great modernising poems of Eliot and Pound, but with the unique perspective of a brilliant new female voice.
