Description

Meryl Pugh’s single prose-poem pamphlet is a beautifully wrought piece that considers the ambivalent privilege of heterosexual marriage via the Egyptian myth of Osiris. As each powerful section passes, thoughts are provoked about tenderness, loyalty, self-esteem and their place in violent or indifferent environments; about what happens to good intentions in unequal romantic contracts. At the same time this evocative poetry opens up the possibility of wonder and myth in the contemporary everyday. Often difficult subjects are peeled away gradually to reveal, finally, the prospect of wonder and hope.
