About the Book

H. L. Hix's Rain Inscription gives vivid testimony to the paradox that human making is both lasting and fleeting. Its three sections (a sonnet-sequence Q&A with contemporary cultural studies, a renewal of the sayings of Herakleitos and Jesus, and a group of dialogues with contemporary artists) extend an already capacious dialogue beyond its prior limits.

H. L. Hix has published twelve books with Etruscan, including Chromatic (2006), a finalist for the National Book Award. Other awards include the T. S. Eliot Prize, the Peregrine Smith Award, and fellowships from the NEA, the Kansas Arts Commission, and the Missouri Arts Council.
