Descrizione
In this debut collection, Voodoo Inverso, Mark Wagenaar composes a startling mystical imagism and sets it to music, using self-portraits to explore differing physical and spiritual landscapes. He uses a variety of personae--a victim of sex trafficking in Amsterdam, a fichera dancer, a portrait haunted by Dante, a carillonneur of starlight, an elephant in pink slippers remembering its beloved--to silhouette the intricacies and frailties of the body and the world. In a series of 'gospels' and 'histories'--such as the poems 'The History of Ecstasy' and 'Moth Hour Gospel'--he shines a light on the possibilities of transcendence and transfiguration, weaving together memory and loss with desire and hope.
