Points for a Compass Rose

by

Points for a Compass Rose Cover

 

Staff Pick

Evan S. Connell's oeuvre includes the historical work Son of the Morning Star: Custer and the Little Bighorn and novels such as Diary of a Rapist, Deus lo volt!, and the companion pieces Mr. Bridge and Mrs. Bridge which were made into the Merchant Ivory film Mr. and Mrs. Bridge. Of all his work, I particularly appreciate the long poems (also companion pieces) Points for a Compass Rose and Notes from a Bottle Found on a Beach at Carmel for their colorful sense of journeying, of being lost at sea, of taking measurement, and for the sustained verse structure. What intrigues me so much about Connell is his vast body of knowledge on his subject matter and his ability to sustain the artifice through which he tells a story.
