I Know Your Heart, Hieronymus Bosch (Portlandia Group, 2000)
by Kurt S. Olsson
I Know Your Heart, Hieronymus Bosch is strikingly original and daring. Like Bosch, Olsson takes us inside a dream like and often hellish world where we meet witches, swaggering adolescent boys, a stuffed circus bear, the poet's murderer, and characters including Cain, Diogenes, and Orpheus. Lyrical and eerie, grotesque and yet beautiful, Olsson's poems reveal a sublime mastery of language as well as an uncanny and unique vision.
