Review of Banned for Life

Read my review of Arlene Ang's new book at Cleaver Magazine.


"Two late poems, “Behind the Locked Door” and “After the Flood,” are of particular interest because they allude to the Book of Enoch—an apocryphal text found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. In “Behind the Locked Door,” for example, the mother figure references the archangel Azazel, who, according to 1 Book of Enoch, was a member of a rebellious group of angels called the Watchers who came to earth, copulated with mortal women and gave birth to the raging giants, the Nephilim"
