Turning from All Hallows (Celtic Samhain), through Yule to Candlemas (Imbolc) and Lady Day (the Spring Equinox), to May Day (Beltane) and to Midsummer's Day and Lammas, before reaching Michaelmas (the Autumn Equinox), ready to begin the next turn of the wheel, this anthology celebrates the eight festivals of the old ritual calendar — the turning of the seasons and death and rebirth of the year. Anchored firmly in tradition, the poets gathered here (including Gail Ashton, Chris Considine, Nigel Hutchinson, M.J. Oliver, Fiona Owen, Sarah Watkinson and Patricia Helen Wooldridge) range freely across contemporary landscape and contemporary outlook to reflect on our shifting relationships with nature: what we have lost and what we still hold dear.
From Hallows to Harvest: an anthology of the year's turning is a very special, limited edition anthology, illustrated throughout, featuring poetry drawn from Cinnamon's Wheel of the Year mini-competitions. A real collector's item — not to be missed.
