Product details
Paperback: 230 pages
Publisher: Bee Williamson
ISBN: 9780646962016
Trim size: 148 x 210 mm

In 2010 Melbourne poet Bee Williamson set herself a challenge. After publishing several slim volumes of poetry, it was time, she thought, to tackle the big issues in life: God, War, Love, Nature, Life and Madness. As a Café Poet for Australia Poetry Ltd, she’d sit down with her café latte at the cosy Pheast48 in Armadale to write a new suite of poems that would form the backbone of Torment & Soul. In this new work, which intersperses the poetry with intimate drawings of her loved ones, she shares her poetic vision of the world, speaking with her innermost voice and the voice of nature. Included in this collection are earlier poems from her student years at the VCA and other poems written during periods of mental illness. Rich in imagery and with a spiritual alchemy that draws on every faith from Sufi to Aboriginal, Torment & Soul is a visionary and sensual feast, both uplifting and challenging.
