Poetry. BELA FAWR'S CABARET is a new book of poems from writer David Annwn. Gavin Selerie says, "David Annwn's work drills deep into the strata of myth and history, exposing devices which resonate in new contexts. Faithful to the living moment, his poems dip, hover and dart through soundscapes rich with suggestion, rhythmically charged and etymologically playful. Formally adventurous and inviting disjunction, these texts retain a lyric coherence that powerfully renders layers of experience. The mode veers from jazzy to mystical, evoking in the reader both disturbance and content. BELA FAWR'S CABARET has this recognisable stamp: music and legend 'Knocked Abaht a Bit', mischievous humour yielding subtle insight."
