Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Fifteen 'modern traditional tales' draw on the author's deep knowledge of classical mythology and legends from every continent. 'Far North', based on an Inuit myth, is set among desperate women in the frozen north, surviving against all odds until a stranger arrives and sets up jealousies between them. Long after his death, Cuthbert, Bishop of Lindisfarne, longs to be freed from his miraculously incorruptible body; two young twins work out their sibling rivalry in a dangerous game of witches and getting lost in the forest; and the biblical Sarah, wife of Abraham, looks back over her extraordinary adventures and the God and the husband she has wrestled with for a whole lifetime. These stories, formally bold and innovative, emotionally edgy and deeply imbued with a sense of location, addresses Sara Maitland's primary concerns about the links between beauty and terror, modernity and ritual."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
