UNDER BASIL LEAVES An Anthology of PoemsProduct no.: HP127
Paulette A. Ramsay
In this debut collection, Paulette Ramsay addresses the "unsanctioned" layers of experience that are often hidden behind social codes and cloaks of respectability. Their layered wit is one of the most engaging features of these poems that range over diverse subjects – childhood memories, politics, religion, women's concerns, life and death, "man and woman story".
Ramsay's ironic, often hilarious vision illuminates everyday relationships and experiences from fresh perspectives that will delight her readers. Readers will equally enjoy the range of voices, from folk to polemic, that add drama to much of the collection.
