and Aeneas stares into her helmet

and Aeneas stares into her helmet


Tiffany Higgins

This is Aeneas, once son of Venus, now a warfighting daughter of America deployed 'from Charlottesville to Fallujah,' straining in the thick of modern war's most perverse miasma. Tiffany Higgins' anachronistic and recast hero is one brilliantly charged nexus of exploitation and war; she is captured, tortured, and released as a sequence of heart-breaking lyrics. A stunning book. —Patrick Herron, author of The American Godwar Complex
