“The Orpheus Complex…an ambitious sonnet sequence that combines the myth of Orpheus with the poet’s reflections on various other issues including the state of spirituality in America today, the problem of “translating” an ancient myth into a contemporary context, and the nature of poetry and its relationship to what poets are writing….Kress asks us to imagine Orpheus, the ancient poet, sprung loose in America… “


John Guzlowski, author of Lightning and Ashes
