    This review was beautiful. You really tied everything together. Also, the conclusion seemed to echo the initial poem you described about the children reaching out into the darkness. Nice. Were the translated poems similar in anyway (language, time period, theme, style, etc) or were they from all over?

    • Thank you! And YES to the translated poems! Sorry, I didn’t really know enough about Classics to describe this right, I think. Most of the translations are from the Aeneid and such, like Orpheus and Eurydice that I talked about. Nothing contemporary!
