Endless links three poems together based on a theme of infinity. John Boyle O’Reilly’s "Infinite" establishes the overwhelming nature of an infinite realm, and Robert McAlmon’s "Burial" illustrates this infinite realm as a mathematically-constructed world that dispels chaos as irrelevant. This conceptualized world exists in the mind of one uneasy narrator who comes forward with Claude McKay’s "I Know My Soul." The narrator struggles with the finite length of his life, but finally accepts his fate to succumb happily into the endless unknown.
