Grunt of the Minotaur

Robin Richardson's debut poetry collection is startling in its lyrical inventiveness and stylistic flair. Drawing heavily on her background as a visual artist, Grunt of the Minotaur offers poems rich in imagery and visual texture. Larger themes from history, art, music, and film are cast against moments of domestic intimacy in fanciful narratives and sprightly, impressionistic lyrics.

Here are poems that are equally melodic and pictorial, at once alien and familiar; reading them helps to restore our sense of wonder in the world around us.

Praise for Grunt of the Minotaur:

"These fresh, fire-bright poems are barbed blooms petalled with wise cautions and unexpected joy." — Kevin Connolly

"Flaunting a painterly attention to the seductive textures of menace — here are portraits, still lifes, fables and allegorical tableaux that enrapture the ear with the textures of language itself." — Suzanne Buffam
