Description

In Christian theology, a skandalon is a distraction from grace, a maze of error where we wander pointlessly, wasting our lives. To the traditional Greeks, a skandalon used to be the trigger of a trap. T. R. Hummer’s labyrinthine new collection encompasses these meanings and more, as its poems take more than a few paths — some beguiling, some grotesque, some instructive, some opaque — to unexpected destinations. Undergirding the gathering is a series of progressive vignettes entitled “Sufferers of the Wedding,” which follows the quarrels and couplings of a human man and woman in addition to the angel and demon who observe them.

Skandalon presents poems that imagine the delicate, tragic, and ridiculous responses of creatures who lose themselves in a world they’d wrongly imagined to be their very own.
