A Rose for Ecclesiastes by Roger Zelazny
A poet laureate is sent to Mars to translate ancient religious Martian texts.
While he is there he discovers the fate of the inhabitants and falls in love with one.
Through his experience he finds his humanity.
The poet, who was also the narrator, was an unlikable person; difficult and arrogant.
To be honest the story did not work for me. I simply found myself uninterested in this character.
