Robert Cooperman is a master of the narrative poem. The Lily of the West is a tale of desperate ambition, unrequited love, murder, greed, and promises, both broken and kept. The story ranges from ante-bellum Kentucky and the horrors of slavery and the Civil War, to Paris, then New York City, and finally back to Louisville.
