Country: Africa / Zambia flag Zambia
Description:
A Blood Condition tells a story of inheritance - the people, places, cultures and memories that form us. Kayo Chingonyi explores how distance and time, nations and a century's history, can collapse within a body; our past continuous in our present. From London, Leeds, and The North East to the banks of the Zambezi river, these poems consider change and permanence, grief and joy, the painful ongoing process of letting go, with remarkable music and clarity.

At the Devil's Banquets by Anise Koltz EN

0 Ratings
Country: Europe / Luxembourg flag Luxembourg
Description:
Poetry. Translated from the French by John F. Deane. The sequential poem is the connective tissue of AT THE DEVIL'S BANQUETS, a collection that holds at its heart the raw materials of familial relations and emotional inheritance. Koltz is tuned to a dark frequency, uncomfortably listening at the edge of the universe and forever seeking clarity of feeling. This work is highly metaphorical, self-incriminating, and spare, with an anger turned gently inward. John F. Deane's direct, clear translations from the French serve Koltz's somber vision exquisitely.
