This Water: Five Tales
Beverley Farmer

Fiction - Published: 1/Jun/2017 - ISBN: 9781925336313

Beverley Farmer is a pioneer of women’s writing in her exploration of feminine concerns, and her use of different literary forms novel, short story, poetry, essay, journal, myth and fairy tale. This Water is a collection of five tales, each a fragmentary love story with a nameless woman at the centre, and a mythic dimension rooted in the power of nature. Water and stone, ice and fire, light and darkness play an important role in all the stories, as do other motifs related to women’s experience; blood, birth, possession and release, marriage and singularity.
