Eliza and the Bear

Eliza and the Bear

by Eleanor Rees
Paperback
Publication Date: 28/11/2013
RRP  $18.69 $17.95
Eleanor Rees's first collection, Andraste's Hair was shortlisted for Best First Collection in the 2007 Forward Prizes and for the 2008 Glen Dimplex Poetry Award. In her second full-length collection she continues to play the role of mythologiser and tale teller, moving away from her previous subject, the imagined city, into the magical psyches of changeling creatures.

In powerful nocturnal encounters silent visitors travel from the dark world, take on elemental form and embrace Rees's narrators with sensual and erotic urgency. Laced with tales of physical transformations, Rees's use of fairy stories and night visions radically reimagines the female experience through the psychic collisions of the body and our desires.

Eliza and the Bear offers a man who gives birth, trees that sing, a dissolving house, a woman trapped in walls, a peasant farmer in his barren fields, the wife of a Victorian botanist who longs for a child while her husband 'discovers' the new world, winter songs and red hot hearths: mysterious forces which have their home within us all.
