'"The mares which bear me as far as my desires might reach ...": a piece of writing from two and a half thousand years ago catches the intent of this work. The author has etched a body of poetry that follows a trajectory not often encountered in the writings of the modern world.'- From the Preface by Bernard Burgoyne this is a stunning and original book that breaks new ground in the field of contemporary literature. Informed by Greek and Shakespearean tragedy, readings of Lacan, Freud and P. G. Wodehouse, its principal themes are maternal desire; the structure of tragic thought; writing itself, and the possibility of finding seemingly impossible pathways through the suffering of lived experience. It is, amongst other things, a love story, a philosophical inquiry, an artwork, a collection of poetry and - a book of jokes. The author writes an expansive, 'everyone welcome', style of epic, one which is proof for the urgent necessity of the poetic voice. Bernard Burgoyne provides the Preface and fresh topological etchings.
