To Fall Fable: Alice Wickenden


Posted 11 months ago in More

Besides offering eloquent and insightful critiques of literature on our print pages, Alice Wickenden has been creating her own body of wondrous work.

To Fall Fable is a selection of poems in which “meaning, memory and plants are all overgrown…Here a forest learns to speak its confusion; Adam and Eve fall from the garden of Eden; a song is accidentally bitten to death, and yet – always – love resprouts.

To Fall Fable offers a fall which occurs again and again, finding resonance and promise through multiple iterations of the same. Desire is ultimately revealed to be fecund: spawning both joy and trauma, abuse and hope.”

It ushers in 2021, arriving on January 1.
