Looking Out from the Bashan: the Republic of Og
Og is the last survivor of the giant races of the Old Testament, doomed to conquest by God's chosen people on their way to the Promised Land. Og is not only the king but, as a giant amongst ordinary sized humans, he also represents the monster within. An exciting new collection of poems linked by a strong narrative into a poetic 'biography'.
'Og is wonderfully primal and unexpected, a Biblical and gigantic character. Og is the naive power of perception and learning, a great craft afloat on his own oceanic curiosity.' - Philip Salom, Keeping Carter.
