Review: The Dream of Intelligence, by Sebastian Barker

This lucid poem, readable as an inspired novel... is a series of dream-soliloquies, where Barker, through the persona of Nietzsche, seeks a synthesis of Apollo and Dionysis. The blank verse is original, as distinctive as Wordsworth's... lean, strong in content. This is a book to settle down with and re-read... English poetry is alive and well.
