The Shipwrecked House PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Shipwrecked House free pdf Anchors, shipwrecks, whales and islands abound in this first collection by young Anglo-Breton poet Claire Trevien. These poems are sketches, lyrics, dreams, and experiments in language as sound. Trevien's is a surreal vision, steeped in myth and music, in which everything is alive and - like the sea itself - constantly shifting form. Fishermen become owls- one woman turns into a snake, another gives birth to a tree- a glow-worm might be a wasp or 'a toy on standby'. Struck through with brilliant and sometimes sinister imagery reminiscent of Pan's Labyrinth or an Angela Carter novel, The Shipwrecked House is a unique and hallucinatory debut from a poet-to-watch.
