Description


The content of these sonnets, appearing comparatively simple at first, resonate far beyond the familiar legend of Orpheus and Eurydice; they have a range that encompasses the Singing God and his beloved Eurydice; legend in general; time; flight and change; architecture, music and dance; and animals, plants, flowers, and fruits.
