This selection is from Averno, a collection by Louise Gluck that mines the ancient myth of Persephone for the light that it sheds on the experience of death and dying.

To mark National Poetry Month, NPR.org will feature a series of new works selected by the Academy of American Poets. Learn more about this and other titles at the academy's New Spring Books list.
