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.

        "Orpheus with his lute made trees, " And the mountain tops that freeze. " Bow themselves when he did sing; " To his music plants and flowers " Ever sprung, as sun and showers " There had made a lasting spring. " Everything that heard him play, " Even the billows of the sea. " Hung their heads, and then lay by. " In sweet music is such art. " Killing care and grief of heart.   As with many great movies, this is a reinterpretation of an ancient tale, "Orpheus and Eurydice," or more precisely an adaptation of the play Orfeu da Conceição by Vinicius de Moraes.
