The setting is Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. There, the author has created a place where the lines between good and evil, real and imagined, are blurred, as if two universes had converged. There, for a brief period, the powers of God and Satan are intertwined and the reader participates in questioning good and evil and whether there is a level of corruption that may be good. Dor is a poem of salvation, of sin and punishment, told in heroic blank verse
