Caliban's Redemption

Front Cover
Mandrake, Apr 1, 2004 - English poetry - 131 pages
0 Reviews
In this collection of occult poems Parry's alter-ego Caliban muses on sexuality, seclusion and Shakespeare. Moreover, by trying to capture the dark dwarf's metaphysical lyrics moment by moment, the author slowly confronts himself as a willing prisoner on the magical island of violence and desire. After all, Caliban would claim that neither Browning nor Nietzsche had fully grasped the ethics of redemption which can only be found in unadulterated selfhood.
