Description

This volume of poems consists of 12 groupings of texts under the rubric "Pistes", designating the paths of earthly experience that intersect the territories of breath, in the sense of the Greek "pneuma" - the breath that instils life and, in Jungian interpretations, contains prophecy. Notes and a critical introduction to the poems are also included.
