Deals with the biblical figure of Abishag as a leitmotif, set in both past and present. The bulk of the scenes takes place in the deep South, beginning in the 1960s and concluding in the present. As a secondary motif, the figure of Aeneas is parodied, especially his wanderings, which are configured to the wanderings of the contemporary individual in the South.
About the poet: Born in Louisiana, Leon Titche spent his childhood years in Arizona. He later returned to Louisiana and attended Tulane University, from where he received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees.
