Heathcote Williams - The Last Dodo and Dreams of Flying

Heathcote Williams - The Last Dodo and Dreams of Flying

20.00

With 'Whale Nation' Heathcote Williams almost single-handed invented the epic polemic poem. His new collection 'The Last Dodo and Dreams of Flying' shows him on dazzling form in similar vein, a collection of epic and long poems which take the Dodo as a metaphor for the British Empire; the bee as a symbol of ecology; and wasp honey and sleep flight as experiences of sacred transcendence. A deeply moral book which both delights and offers solace.
