"The Real World of Manuel Córdova is a long, single poem by W.S. Merwin consisting of forty-three fourteen-line stanzas. Upon reading it for the first time I knew I wanted to spend deep time working on it. The poem evokes the very essence of the mythological journey; of going for and coming back changed. It is an arduous journey, both through time and through terrain. The poem also describes an interior journey into the dream world. I flooded myself with information because what poetry does not impart—is information. Poetry is a door to the ineffable. My job, however, was to make a container to hold that ineffability."
