The Circular Incantation PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Circular Incantation free pdf The incantation you find in this surprising collection is multifaceted and complex: the intimate personal, the familial and the local appear effortlessly intertwined with the collective socio-political, the mystical, the mythical, the religious, the ecological, the tribal and the cosmic. The often obvious references to specific countries like Portugal, Canada or South Africa transit into countless other locales, memories and contexts, real or fictionalised, conscious or unconscious, read about and reworked, felt, thought, imagined, re-imagined, pondered upon...One incantation leads to another and another and you become engulfed, expanded, larger than you thought you were.
