A lonely man possessing special powers crosses into an unknown country. There he meets three mysterious figures: an alluring diva, a shape-shifting siren, and an oddly omniscient hunter. Gradually, the four-part variations of I, Benjamin assume the disquieting dimensions of a visionary passageway to that unknowable thing called a beautiful life....

Theodore Enslin's poetic career spans 51 years since the publication of his first book, The Work Proposed in 1958; now, with his self-proclaimed swan song, he presents a "quasi-autobiographical" fable of an artist's life.
