About the Book

Highlight Story

Untwine the Wind makes for an unusual reading, and therefore calls for a perceptive response. The Wind is not an abstraction in the poems but a vibrant being, which caresses petals, awakens mystical empathy, rattles windows, blows off roofs and frightens the ego. It is Lorca's duende, which never behaves the same way. It is lawless power, self-willed and untamable.

The imagery, contemporary and surreal succeeds in capturing problematic emotive syndromes and states. Untwine the Wind beats a new rhythm of clipped condensed resonance which reverberates and repercusses so very uniquely.
