Eliza and the Bear

4.25  ·  Rating Details ·  12 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Laced with tales of physical transformations, the author's use of fairy stories and night visions reimagines the female experience through the psychic collisions of the body and our desires. This book offers a man who gives birth, trees that sing, a dissolving house, a woman trapped in walls, and a peasant farmer in his barren fields.
Hardcover, 64 pages
Published May 14th 2010 by Salt Publishing (first published January 1st 2009)

This is one of the most beautiful things I have ever encountered - a wonderful blending of myth, dream, fairy tale, the gothic and surreal with images of the body and of desire. It is dark, haunting, fantastic. My favourite poem from this collection is Changeling: "Thoughts flit into the night like bats. / Let them go. / Fall to animal."
