A companion volume to Datura comprising nine extensive essays and the works of 48 poets. A chthonic and deeply rooted work. Pulled from the ground, its shrieks threatening madness, carved and anointed, given form and breath...so it is, the Word walks. Dreams and revelations put to paper form the body of this second anthology of esoteric poesis. Datura, that silver deadly bloom, unfurled its petals to reveal the harmonics of inspiration born of moonlight, a narcotic song sung by a siren. Mandragora continues in this tradition, yet thrums also with its own chthonic music - the pulse of stars beneath the earth. The blood-body and the soul-mind meeting each other in the word, in things that grow and shift below - mycelia and nutritive rot, the green heart of a seed turning in the lightless deeps. Yes, the poetry in Mandragora drives deep into the humus heart of experience - spellwork, praise, story, song. From the breathless brevity of haiku through the humming rhythm of the long meditation the thread of hidden history runs, telling in mosaic the story of the occultist, the witch, the worshipper, the scholar and the celebrant.

Book Description Scarlet Imprint, 2012. Soft cover. Condition: New. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 2012 Scarlet Imprint trade paperback. NEW. A companion volume to Datura comprising nine extensive essays and the works of 48 poets. A chthonic and deeply rooted work. Pulled from the ground, its shrieks threatening madness, carved and anointed, given form and breath so it is, the Word walks. Dreams and revelations put to paper form the body of this second anthology of esoteric poesis. Datura, that silver deadly bloom, unfurled its petals to reveal the harmonics of inspiration born of moonlight, a narcotic song sung by a siren. Mandragora continues in this tradition, yet thrums also with its own chthonic music the pulse of stars beneath the earth. The blood-body and the soul-mind meeting each other in the word, in things that grow and shift below mycelia and nutritive rot, the green heart of a seed turning in the lightless deeps. Yes, the poetry in Mandragora drives deep into the humus heart of experience spellwork, praise, story, song. From the breathless brevity of haiku through the humming rhythm of the long meditation the thread of hidden history runs, telling in mosaic the story of the occultist, the witch, the worshipper, the scholar and the celebrant. Like Datura, this is a work of many voices from a rich diversity of practice, each burning the wick to illuminate a piece of the Great Work. Some voices will be familiar to those readers of the first anthology, some will be new, and all are testament to a continuing dedication to the sublime and challenging work of poetic and artistic craft in our communities. In addition to the rich wilderness of poetry represented, Mandragora also presents nine essays on the nature of the strange, mad, chymical wedding of poet and magic, and the occult euphoria that follows it through time and space. Includes The Poet as God Seducer P.Sufenas Virius Lupus, Black Venus and Wise Hermes Phil Legard, On Cut-Up Alexander Cummins, A Spell to Awaken England Peter Grey, Magical Verse in Ritual Theatre Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule, Burying the Poet Erynn Rowan Laurie, On Pessoa Jose Leitao, Houses of Death Jimmy T. Kirkbride and Head of Orpheus Michael Routery. Seller Inventory # ABE-1515170251622
