Bougainvillea Ringplay

Written by Fred D'Aguiar for n/a on no date provided

Marion Bethel's poems -- at once shamanistic, heraldic, full of ribald, sassy, womanish and affecting -- invites us into a world of extremes, rich and poor, harsh and kind, of surface tendencies and plumbed depths, artificially privileged economies and others scratching for a living, songs of praise and riffs of curses, spells, chants and enchantments, all of which add up to a sparkling arithmetic of the soul.
