Limbinal
By Oana Avasilichioaei

Limbinal, as its hybrid title suggests, speaks in the porous space between a limb’s articulations and a liminal border. Formally diverse, the pieces in Limbinal intersect prose fragments with incantatory dialogues, poetic footnotes with photographic phrases, rebellious translations with liquid transpositions.

Love and SavageryFront Cover
Love and Savagery
By Des Walsh

This book of poems is a sustained adoration of the beloved that echoes the work of the troubadours. The unnamed Irish woman of this collection “the complicated jewel of the Burren Peninsula,” leads the narrator on a spiritual quest from the streets of St John’s to the seeminingly impenetrable evergreen thickets of Ireland. Recently released as a feature film, Love and Savagery is a lyrical story of impossible love. On the twentieth anniversary of its first publication and the astonishing occasion of its release as a feature film, Talon has published a new edition of Love and Savagery, celebrating the transformation of the essence of such a finely crafted book of poetry into a film that pays homage to its literary roots.
