    For more than four decades Ivan Argüelles has devoted broad erudition and deep imagination to intuitively create a poetry that is both unique and ancient, musical and often boldly experimental. In the full force of his poetry we might expect to encounter anything, yet there is always some guiding meta-narrative. For the last 20 years he has reinvented the narrative epic in fascinating ways. The obsessions multiply, interconnect and weave – mythical, erotic, characters and phrases from popular culture, obscure vedic ritual, the universe on all levels – nothing seems forbidden, yet the poetry retains the sweep of the epic. In his own words it, “requires the reader to give up any notion of syntactic coherency while at the same time adhering to the concept of narrative fluidity. We are in the single and only moment of creation, The Big Bang, when falling in love becomes the obsessive reiteration of a unique poetics, that of being obliged to surrender the Self, foraging an oblivion of... More > the skin.” Comedy, Divine, The, his most recent and perhaps penultimate epic, contains all these qualities and more. It must be experienced in full without expectation. It must be engaged thoroughly in the imagination and allowed to do its work. Like Dante we are guided by a master through the perils and ultimately the revelation of whatever being is when it moves beyond the limitations of the culturally defined creature.< Less
