Description


RITONA is pleased to announce the publication of And If I Go With Child?: Re-imagining the Mysteries of Tam Lin, by poet Charlotte Hussey.

'His boneless fingers bendto conjure newborn shapesfrom perturbed clouds of matter, a slippery, pink brood they fallall around, or from me?I wake, hands crossedover my heart.'

Through twenty-seven poems, Charlotte Hussey explores the initiatory potential of the ancient Scottish faery story, "The Ballad of Tam Lin."

The ballad tells the tale of a woman's haunting encounter with a figure trapped by the Faerie Queen. In And If I Go With Child?, Charlotte Hussey becomes the story itself, and speaks beautifully in her poems of the power of redemptive love.
