The Giant's Ring

The Giant’s Ring grapples deeply with the various delusions of immortality, declaring that the secular immortalities of name and achievement are just as vacuous as the old spiritualist immortality of soul.

… Homer and Shakespeare are names,
Not of men but verses, …[1]

The Giant’s Ring was included in Robert Hass’ anthology Rock and Hawk.
