Dwellings Places of Souls is the third and final volume of the 40,000-verse epic The Door of No Return. In it the master of poetry Boris A. Novak returns to a more lyrical linguistic approach, captured in a powerful composition of 99 poems. The book represents the synthesis of the entire work and a closing sequel of the first two volumes. At the same time it is markedly different in its linguistic tone and poetic vision. The concluding lines are elegiac and also very personal, the exceedingly tense state of the world we live in also unmistakeably inscribed in the final apocalyptic notes.
