The Whiskey Tree: Untamed Love: Wave 1

Alan Parry

The Whiskey Tree: Untamed Love (Wave 1)

Lose yourself in the depths of The Whiskey Tree: Untamed Love (Wave 1), a compelling anthology that serves as a sequel to the renowned first collection, Untamed Nature (Wave 1). Edited and curated by Alan Parry, this volume reunites the original 14 writers, ensuring a continuity of voice and thematic richness that readers have come to cherish.

Published by The Broken Spine, Untamed Love digs into the complexities of love-its raw, untamed nature-through a series of tightly crafted, highly stylised poems. Each piece is a nuanced exploration of love's multifaceted expressions, echoing the poignant observation by bell hooks: 'The practice of love offers no place of safety. We risk loss, hurt, pain. We risk being acted upon by forces outside our control.'

With contributions from Sue Finch, David Butler, and Morag Anderson and others, this anthology showcases individual talent and speaks to the collective experience of love's untamed forces. The physical book is a piece of art in itself, featuring a design collaboration between Alan Parry and Andrew James Lloyd.

Whether you are a longtime follower of The Broken Spine's publications or a newcomer drawn to evocative poetry, Untamed Love promises to be a superb addition to any literary collection. Explore the vulnerabilities of love; its transformative power; physicality and sensuality; endurance and resilience; and love's mystical and spiritual diemnsions in these pages.

The Whiskey Tree (Wave 1) Poets are: Alan Parry, Cáit O'Neill McCullagh, Matthew M. C. Smith, Sue Finch, David Butler, Morag Anderson, Mary Earnshaw, James Jackson, Karen Pierce Gonzalez, Paul Robert Mullen, Vikki C., Jay Rafferty, Anne Walsh Donelly, and Paul Brookes.
