50 years at the cutting edge of poetry publishing

“A meeting point for poets of all latitudes”
— VĂ­ctor Rodríguez Núñez



by Michelene Wandor

MICHELENE WANDOR’s new poetry collection travels in many directions, through Europe, the
Middle East and beyond, with travellers as various as Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, Isabella d’Este and Lucrezia Borgia. Thematically, the poems alight at Greek mythology, gender, and the evergreens of love, anguish, power and tragedy.

The first and final touchpoints lie in the language itself, which is both guide and sustenance. Lyrical, narrative and startlingly evocative, the words and poetic shapes travel down and across pages and spaces, and continue to resonate in mind and memory.

For publication February 2021
