Overview

In praise and rant, the poems in Barbaric Cultural Practice pay tribute to our dear Mother World's enchantments as well as her upheavals. They confront the stresses of urban life as juxtaposed to nature's round, and deal, for example, with the effect of computers on our psyche and with the imprint of electronic media upon perception, consciousness and dream life. They are a response to the need for action against climate change and a humorous protest against overwhelming technology.
