Beginning with the forest wanderings of a mentally lost father in the twentieth century, and ending with Eve’s original choice of wisdom over obedience, THE RUINED WALLED CASTLE GARDEN’s lyrics are spoken by or about actual historical figures such as Lizzie Borden, Emma Mille, Nikola Tesla, Virginia Woolf, and by unidentified representative contemporaries who work in a factory or model for an art class, visit Doha or Baghdad, weed a Scottish garden, walk beneath a New York winter sky. The poems interrogate faith, justice, militarism, madness, and the endless relation between two sexes.
