Orpheus & Eurydice
A Lyric Sequence
Gregory Orr

"How can I celebrate love / now that I know what it does?" So begins this book-length lyric sequence which reinhabits and modernizes the story of Orpheus, the mythic master of the lyre (and father of poetry) and Eurydice, his lover who died and whom Orpheus tried to rescue from Hades. Gregory Orr's spare, elegant verse brilliantly tells the story. The book design received the Certificate of Merit for Internal Design from Bookbuilders West.

For Orpheus & Eurydice, Gregory Orr

"A reader unfamiliar with Orr's work may be surprised, at first, by the richness of both action and visual detail that his succinct, spare poems convey. Lyricism can erupt in the midst of desolation."
Boston Globe

“Orr’s poems are soulful and insightful. They touch the heart of the human experience.”
– Sarah McKim, from a "Reader Comment" card
