Wish is the debut pamphlet from Katerina Neocleous and promises to be one of the stand out collections of 2019.
‘A glance at the contents list – a Neocleous poem in itself – puts you immediately in Katerina’s ambiguous world: is this everyday reality? Yes – but a real world on which this poet’s magic touch confers so many extra dimensions: bluebell woods, cherry blossom and crows are here immediately as themselves, yet sit alongside and bleed into alchemy, necromancy and a grimoire. Once read, these poems of desire and regret, like Katerina’s Burr itself, will be snagged fast for weeks in your mind. What glorious words! What tear-washed colour! What compelling music!’ – Charles Johnson
What people say:
Hard to believe this Maytree Press publication is a debut collection … it is simply brilliant.
