Sonnets to a Promiscuous Beauty - A Homage to the Western Canon


This compact, physically beautiful book consists of twelve love poems in the form of Shakespearean style sonnets. Between them they tell an authentic and passionate love story, drawing on the full resources of the Western cultural tradition in terms of poetry, myth and theatre. Each is superbly illustrated by the late Jorg Schmeisser and accompanied by an erudite commentary by the poet on both the sources of his imagery and the unfolding psychology and erotic character of the love story the poems relate.
