A collection of poems that will destroy your preconceptions of how stories are told and redefine what visceral literature is – Lawrence Gladeview

anTipas

All physical copies sold out. PDF Version below.

The skeletal story that makes up the chapbook is based on the biblical martyr Antipas, who perished in the well-worn service of good v. evil. It features a faceless/nameless cast waging battle in a brief but tortured drama, the fractured scenes of which Raymond stretches out to fit over themes of revenge, rage, sin and sacrifice with tough, raw, sinewy language. As opposed to some of Raymond’s more immediate work “anTipas” is an alm of High Modernism for a post post-modern age – and one that offers a deeper dive for the reader – Domesday Notebook
