The Tears of Isis Cover Illustration Chosen

Isis4_2

To quote from the blurb on Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing’s website:  “To the Elizabethan poet Sir Philip Sidney, in his Defence of Poesy, ‘lifted up with the vigor of his own invention, [the poet — or, indeed, the artist in general] doth grow, in effect, into another nature, in making things either better than nature bringeth forth, or, quite anew, forms such as never were in nature, as the heroes, demi-gods, cyclops, chimeras, furies, and such like.’  And so it may be proper that the book we have here, The Tears of Isis, begins with a poem about a sculptor, a modern Medusa, and concludes with the title story of another sculptor who travels a continent for inspiration, in search of the goddess, ‘the Weeping Isis,’ and ends with discovery of her own self.”  For more information including a gloss of other stories to be found herein, as well as a link to the publisher’s bio of me, click here.  (Cf. also January 2, December 13, et al.)
