"Conqueror" was part of Kathleen Kenny's first place
prize entry in the Academy of American Poets con-
test. Kenny is a senior in the Literary College.

In Paris there is a column
of a thousand melted down cannons
with Napoleon in Roman robes
molesting the peak.
His battles tread the circumference.
A part of you is that column.
The same truth, hard and straight,
the same battles, final defeat.
Blood threads the raven's beak
as he picks the bones of battlefield corpses.
Teeth of women in white shred bird flesh;
enamel shines at the split of brass shields
the split of dark chests.
You are not the warrior
leaping one hundred feet in the air,
spreading gray matter on armor.
With horror, women sigh at his raised sword.
Through your strategies, the battle is
frozen in its formula,
until you believe yourself to be
a man of iron.

Heller said. "I stole the idea
from T. S. Eliot." He claimed
death scenes in Catch-22 were
based on similar passages in
Shakespeare's King Lear.
Midway through the reading,
Heller introduced "my instant

Speech department volunteers
who joined him onstage for a
ten-minute scene from the
stage version of Catch-22, with
