'The Waters of Marah', subtitled Selected Prose 1973-1995, brings together the best of the author's non-poetic output. The prose here however mostly includes work that the author classifies as prose-poetry, as well as the longer work 'Tesserae' which could be better described as experimental (and poetic) fiction. These pieces tend also to have verse interludes, which further confuses the definition of which category they actually belong to. In the end however, categories are irrelevant, and the work can be read on its own terms, be it prose, be it prose-poetry, be it fiction, be it unclassifiable. This is musical work that explores the parameters of the sayable in a manner that does not repel the reader but rather draws him/her in as a participant in a remarkable enterprise. Contemporary poetry enthusiasts and lovers of cutting-edge prose will all find this work answering to their requirements.
