Overview
""All the trees whose names we have forgotten have long since embraced our entwined limbs.""
In the tradition of the 19th century, fin-de-siecle prose poem, "Songs from the Black Moon" is a dark elegy for an already-forgotten planet and its wandering, somnambulistic inhabitants.
"A book of beautiful and strangely tranquil outbursts of disaffection and dissolution. I wish everyone on earth lived by the sentiments expressed within it."
--Thomas Ligotti, author of "The Conspiracy Against the Human Race"
"In search of an atrabilious poetics that might render breathable the "black abyss" within, the Baronesse de Tristeombre has written an apocryphal rejoinder to the Book of Lamentations, filled with salt, sand, crystal and leprous flesh. Read this grimoire of "tectonic sorrow" and despair anew."
--Drew Daniel, author of "The Melancholy Assemblage"
"In the black light of these lunar songs, you and I despair for the last time, again."
-- Pseudo-Leopardi, author of "Cantos for the Crestfallen"
""Songs from the Black Moon" resurrects the literary tradition of Dark Romanticism - stark, sparse, and drenched in a blackened lyricism...ecstatic lamentations for the world-without-us..."
-- Eugene Thacker, author of "In The Dust of This Planet"
