Dying for Beauty
Formally, the poem 'Desdemona'] brings into its amplitude and openness material that could be inert, but is lifted always by rhythmic urgency and a faultless, inventive music....Wronsky is also trying to think through the poem, reason passionately through its issues of language, gender, fear and loss.-The Boston Review
