Reviews for david in the canyon
Kievsky chapter 1 . 12/7/2002
You've given this poem a certain sequence, it seems, to characterize David-he starts off human with dust in his hair and eyes and then becomes elevated throughout the poem to a godlike individual in the end. It's an interesting form, nicely logical. Biblical imagery isn't my strong point so I can't comment on that, but I love how you incorporated the dust and the other aspects of the canyon into him. By doing this you have made him a central figure in the poem and in his environment; it's as if he is a conjurer of sorts, in communion with the elements and able to control all of them.
