POETICS: poems, text experiments

Tragedy of the Sun and Stars

Publication

Stolen Mirror. 12 October 2011.

Description

Language fragments with the power of the Trinity bomb test, phrases recombining to produce unexpected, terrifying, and sometimes hilarious offspring. The result lies somewhere between fiction and fact, a strange hybrid of scientific discourse and poetic imagery, revealing a previously hidden world.

This is a perfect-bound paperback, 80 pages with 7 B&W photo illustrations and colour cover. The first 50 copies are numbered and signed on the title page. First edition limited to 100 copies.

I launched this book at the Cuisle International Poetry Festival with a lunch-time reading (1pm) in the Captain's Room of the Hunt Museum.

This book is recommended for those who enjoy experimental fiction with a strange twist of humour.
