T
he foreword to Region of Unlikeness, Jorie Graham's fourth book of poetry, comprises a series of quotations from Augustine, Heidegger, the Bible, and Melville. And these pieces which she chooses as her introduction aptly point the way for what lies in the following pages, since they center around humankind's longing to encapsulate reality in the medium of history and our ultimate inability to do so.
