Andraste�s Hair

Eleanor Rees

Bridging the divide between experimental, performance and traditional poetries the poems in "Andraste’s Hair" draw on myth, memory, folksong and murder ballad. Often set in a mythical Liverpool, a city of metamorphosis and magic, grotesque and beautiful, its buildings are a backdrop for visions and apprehensions of the past. Liverpool at night is a place where boundaries are crossed in search of knowledge, sexual, historical, and emotional - between life and death. Natural and urban landscapes - woodland, city park, dock, terraced street, the river, provide settings for an exploration of the conflict between instinctive and cultured knowledge, between abstract thought and felt experience.The poems are active and forceful - looking for answers they never find.(Amazon)
