    Corvus writes about people -- flawed, alienated, petty, and utterly normal people. He tries to reflect truth in his works, and hopes he doesn't end up reflecting too much of himself. His writing encompasses a wide range of themes and styles, from the classic dilemmas of high schoolers to an absurd treatment of modern gay life and to poetry both modern and classical. Corvus wants to entertain, wishes to create art, and hopes that he has managed to do something of both.
