The Further Poetry of Victor Anderson!|
Author: Victor H. Anderson
Publisher: Cora Anderson
Category: poetry, Goddess, Witchcraft, Feri Trad Level: All
The new book of poetry by Victor H. Anderson, the seminal teacher of the Feri/Faerie Tradition, is now in print for the first time!
LILITH'S GARDEN is the companion volume to Anderson's classic first book of Craft and love poetry, Thorns of the Blood Rose. Before his death, Victor had selected the poems in LILITH'S GARDEN for publication, and his family has published this new book.
"Lilith's Garden is a celebration, a delightfully variegated bouquet of love and laughter, magic and mysticism."
--M. Macha NightMare, author of Pagan Pride: Honoring the Craft and Culture of Earth and Goddess
Victor Anderson lives still in these fierce loving poems, in which the simplest words burst forth into brilliant flower. Sonorous and elegant, his poems capture the pagan heart.
--Patricia Monaghan, author of Seasons of the Witch
"Robert Graves once said that any 'true' poem is an invocation to the Goddess. Surely no poet's work passes this test as consistently as Victor Anderson's. Each poem is an initiation, an epiphany, a spell. And in the exegesis of Witchcraft, it is not the essayist, but the poet, who must take the seat of honor."
--Mike Nichols, author of The Witches' Sabbats
PRAISE FOR VICTOR ANDERSON:
"Victor was one of my first teachers in the Craft. I will always be grateful for the worlds he opened up for me…. He was fierce, passionate, powerful, real. An inspired poet, he was a brilliant creator of myth and liturgy. He was allied spiritually with all the indigenous traditions of the planet; a true shaman."
--Starhawk, author of The Spiral Dance
"My interview with the poet and shaman Victor Anderson...was among the most mysterious of my encounters. His was the only story I heard that was clearly from the land of faery. It was pure poetry."
--Margot Adler, Drawing Down the Moon
"Victor Anderson, the most important exponent of the Feri/Faery Faith in America, is also the person responsible for bringing it to this country. Victor has been a teacher and friend to some of the most influential personalities in the Craft today...The name of Victor Anderson is mentioned with a great deal of reverence, as he is one of the few direct descendants of this ancient faith. He is a keeper of the flame."
--Ellen Hopman, People of the Earth (with Lawrence Bond)
"Victor wrote beautifully poetic rituals for the Faerie Tradition. Over the years, a number of remarkable people were trained by Victor... The influence of the shamanic tradition now called 'Feri' has been enormous."
--Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard
"Victor was a true bard, as evidenced by the beautiful legacy of poetry he infused into the Feri Tradition."
--Witch Eye zine
