Title: Fauverie

Publisher: Seren


Book Condition:New

About this title


The fauverie of this poetry book is the big-cat house in the Jardin des Plantes zoo. But the word also evokes the Fauves, "primitive" painters who used raw color straight from the tube. This volume has childhood trauma and a dying father at its heart, while Paris takes center stage—a city savage as the Amazon, haunted by Aramis the black jaguar and a menagerie of wild animals. Transforming childhood horrors to ultimately mourn a lost parent, Fauverie redeems the darker forces of human nature while celebrating the ferocity and grace of endangered species.
