Spells : 21st-Century Occult PoetryShin, Sarah, Mayer, So, Tamas, Rebecca More by this author...£12.99PaperbackOut of stock
Spells brings together thirty-six contemporary voices exploring the territory where justice, selfhood and the imagination meet the transformative power of the occult. Reflecting recent struggles around #MeToo, and the growing interest in witchcraft and astrology, these poems unmake the world around them so that it might be remade anew. Spells are poems; poetry is spelling. Spell-poems take us into a place where the right words can influence the universe.
