Key Themes: Mental Health, Poetry, Prose


This is a new collection of poetry, prose fiction and nonfiction. The poetry and prose fiction daw not only on the qualities of confessional writing as a genre began by Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton but looks to the writer as a weaver of characters unknown and maybe, unknowable. What Victor Shklovsky (1917) called ‘defamilirization’ literally ‘making strange’ different from the everyday and therefore what we may call literature. Nevertheless , Shelley in his A Defence of Poetry (1821) had already argued that poetry ‘makes familiar objects be as though they were unfamiliar.’ The nonfiction examines topics of interest from a Leftist perspective . Everything for the writer and thinker today from Eleanor Marx to Alice Walker to Kafka and economics.
