Abstract

An Easy Place/To Die is a poetic journey. The book is intrinsically connected to New Orleans and her most recent tragedy, Katrina, but the author and arranger refuses to be grounded solely in the situational. These poems spring out the nagbu, or well of poetic history, specifically the tragedy of Gilgamesh, answer Eliot’s The Wasteland, and allude to both epics in the book’s Joycean scaffolding (none of which is required to accurately read any or all of these poems).
