ORPHEUS HIS SONG AND HIS MUSIC, Richard England’s sixth book of poetry on the theme of Orpheus and his venture to the underworld. The book is beautifully illustrated by Christina Darmanin and also by a number of guest artists. The publication also features a text by tenor Joseph Calleja on Orpheus’ voice.
Daniel Libeskind poet and architect of the Ground Zero Masterplan, in his foreword to the collection, writes “I am struck and deeply affected by Richard England’s
bold and strange Orpheus poems …and suddenly made aware by the beauty of his writing, his precise geometry of words, musical rhythm and mystical insight”.
