About this Item

98 pages. Wrought with sex - abusive, loving, distressing, bewitching. . . . Allegorical Beasts is a collection of poems and stories written over a 30 year period. There are five sections. The first is Sonnets from the Sea, a cycle of 45 sonnets written in Auckland, New Zealand in the early 1980s. They are lyrical, playful, direct, sensual - the poems of a young man tossing in his bed, anxious for a lover, looking for friends, compelled by the wild seas of the Auckland coastline. The second, An Imitation of Dante, is set on a rainy night and morning on Piccadilly Circus. It climbs through the Inferno of loneliness and rejection, the Purgatorio of redemption in friendship to the Paradiso of sexual-romantic love. The Devil Writes to a Woman Who Loves Him, the third section, is a short poem about consensual abuse in a sexual relationship. The fourth, City of Solitude, is the story of a very young writer struggling with words, imagery, identity, disorientation in London at its coldest and most alienating. The final section, Love: a Confession, is an extended meditation on the calamity of love broken and discarded. It is harsh, grievous, ruthless - an exact, inch by inch recounting of sexual love spiralling down through betrayal, guilt and deceit to rage and hate. . . and at last, if only in part, to forgiveness. . . . This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781446152454

About the Author:

Leo Schulz was born and brought up in Auckland, New Zealand, but has devoted most of his adult life to the women, drugs and bars of the East End of London. He has been a professional writer for over 20 years, during which time he has often been paid large amounts of money for work which, by any reasonable standard, is worthless.
