Humbug

15.00

In poems that 'tease reality' in their conflation of scholarship and fabulae, Brenda Mann Hammack draws on and subverts the conventions of late 19th century British literary tradition in her rendering of Victorine, 'a child who won’t die, won’t grow old,' and her companions, including gargoyles and 'a bird crossed with a cat,' whose creation is 'not contingent on God.' Playful, surreal, brilliant in its darkly luminous habitations in which spirits are given meaning, Humbug is craftily wrought and eerily pleasurable.
