Written in the blank verse of Paradise Lost, Jayden Wilson’s new work gathers the forces of modern culture into a new epic, a new archetype, perhaps even a whole new mythology. Tragically, because of its densely (perfectly) chosen words, it will sink into that very same morass of a culture and disappear with nary a gurgle. Its inspiration recalls the classic epics; its dealing in globalization, families, landscapes, warfare, comfort, and travel place it squarely within the world of today. But alas, alas! No one will read it. The very culture it depicts has no attention for stories like this.
