Falling AwakeBook - 2016
Alice Oswalds award-winning and highly acclaimed volume Memorial portrays fallen soldiers from Homers Iliad. Falling Awake expands on that imagery, defining life as a slowly falling weight, where beings fight against their inevitable end. Oswald reimagines classical figures such as Orpheus and Tithonus alive in an English landscape together with shadows, flies, villagers, dew, crickets, all characterized in tension between the weight of death and their own willpower.
