There’s a Witch in the Word Machine
Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: Birlinn General
Published: 6th Sep '18
A new collection written during Jenni’s 2017 Outriders trip to the US and in Paris, whilst in residence at Shakespeare & Co, staying in the room in which many poets and writers have spent time.
This new book, The Witch in the Word Machine, is a collection that underpins Jenni Fagan’s entire approach to words. Her spell poems are portraits of people, lovers and cities: Paris, New York, Edinburgh, Detroit, LA, and San Francisco. The excerpts of her Truth poem are a political response to great uncertainty in the world right now. This collection is an exploration of words as spells, incantations, curse and solace.
