Frames on Gorse #4

Six new texts are to be published on various journals and anthologies in the next few months. They are all interconnected, and deal in different ways with my ongoing concern with frames, in the attempt to shape a writing which inhabits certain rhythms heard in reading and listening.

The first of these texts will appear on the fourth issue of literary journal Gorse. It is entitled Frames and it contains short translations I made of some of Pasolini’s book reviews (never translated into English before), the only song he wrote, a marionette play and a slideshow, while not being ‘about’ any of these at all.

Gorse#4 is out at the end of September. You can read a preview of my text here:

But there is a magical disorder to all of these which reveals the logic from its listener-writer as well as creating a new one from the reader’s perspective: those of sound and word, meaning and memory. To read, in this instance is to open someone’s mind and play with the thoughts within, and then delve into your own to discover a kinship.
Her pages are filled with spiralling thoughts, questions that are so imbedded in us – perhaps even assumed unanswerable – that to dissect their nature seems a path to madness sometimes […]
