Description

Hydrologos is one long poem composed in five suites and a coda, and spoken through masks. It is a poem about a specific passion, the one that always follows love: sorrow. At the poem’s centre is the original lyric elegy, the myth of Orpheus, but re-imagined from the perspective of Eurydike. What happens to a human being under the geologic pressure of passion? — One calls out, and the world’s response is silence. The work of sorrowing, one learns, is the work — the endless work — of listening, by which the listener is changed.
