Averno is a small crater lake in southern , regarded by the ancient Romans as the entrance to the underworld. That place gives its name to Louise Glück's eleventh collection: in a landscape turned irretrievably to winter, it is the only source of heat and light, a gate or passageway that invites traffic between worlds while at the same time opposing their reconciliation. Averno is an extended lamentation, its long, restless poems no less spellbinding for being without plot or hope, no less ravishing for being savage, grief-stricken. What Averno provides is not a map to a point of arrival or departure, but a diagram of where we are, the harrowing, enduring presence. Averno is a 2006 National Book Award Finalist for Poetry.

Vergil in Averno

The heat and stench were Averno's curse, yes, but they were the inevitable
results of Averno's blessing, too, for the hot places of the earth, elsewhere buried
deeply, were here very near the surface. Here waters bubbled boiling up with no

Inspired by medieval legends about the poet Vergil, who was revered not only as the author of the Aeneid but also as a powerful necromancer, Davidson embarked on his Vergil Magus series in the '60s with the intriguing novel The Phoenix and the Mirror. In this sequel, Vergil answers a magical summons from Averno, both the wealthiest and the filthiest of cities. The magnates there are worried about the waning and shifting of the natural fires that have fueled their industries and fouled their air. The bare skeleton of plot is fleshed out with an eccentric, wide-ranging series of digressions, reminiscences, dreams and cabalistic glosses, all in a rich, baroque, rhetorical style.

Excerpt from Descensus Averno and Other Poems N ow rising high, revealing by their glare The dreary realms of sorrow and despair; Now falling low, and darkening, as they fall Hell's gloomy plains and loathsome caverns all Expectant, mute and motionless, alone In solemn state upon his ebon throne Beelzebub, the Prince of Hell, awaits With anxious gaze toward the frowning gates, The coming, long delayed, of Satan; him Whose lordly presence in these regions dim Serves every fear among his hosts to quell; Whose lengthened absence makes a void in hell.
