The Further Poetry of Victor Anderson

A companion volume to Anderson's award-winning first book of poetry, Thorns of the Blood Rose, the author selected the poems in Lilith's Garden for publication before his death (in 2001).

Some of the poems that were deemed too scandalous for inclusion in the previous work are published here for the first time.

Each poem is an initiation, an epiphany, a spell. And in the exegesis of Witchcraft, it is not the essayist, but the poet, who must take the seat of honor.

 

This is a symphony of Victor’s great divine love for the Goddess, expressed in ecstasy.
