Genoa is an unusual book. Paul Metcalf engages Herman Melville, Christopher Columbus, and other historical figures in an amazingly parallel streams of fiction and reality which together form their own other picture like three different musical instruments whose voices blend to create a fourth. The picture of Carl's progressive breakdown is sad to see. The war moments are very disturbing. What are the choices made that lead him to where he ends? Paul Metcalf is something rare an original writer. You won't find too many voices like his. Pound used the technique of quotes in The Cantos, using John Adams' writings and Homer, etc. Paul applied this to prose masterfully.
