A Modern Bestiary

A Modern Bestiary

A collection of poems by

A collection of sixteen sonnets about humans who are transformed into beasts (both real and imaginary), and vice versa, A Modern Bestiary is a new interpretation of the old bestiary tradition, which has fascinated generations of readers and writers alike, from the Middle Ages through to the Modern Age. A fierce invective against modern poetasters and bad poetry in general, Ars Poetastrica does not pretend to be a collection of precepts on good writing but rather an impassioned exhortation towards a new Humanism in poetry.
