Cow
Susan Hawthorne
Instant Download

I am nothing special just a cow who wants to change the world a cow whose eyes are on the sky

Cow leaps and flies into imaginative realms carrying mythology and language. Cow creates the universe, the galaxies and travels through the sky as a herd of stars. Cow writes love poetry and ponders lost histories.

An intriguing approach to the rewriting of myth, this book takes the reader on a journey through the history of languages and symbolic traditions.

Through a main character, Queenie, a cow of many abilities and a history that takes in the creation of the universe, readers come to see the world in new ways. The collection draws on the author’s knowledge of ancient languages and its structure draws on philosophy and the Sangam poetry tradition of South India.

I recommend you lie in bed and read it to your lover, or pleasure yourself with it, mouth it, tongue it, and maybe as I did, circle its words and metaphors, anotate, indulge in marginalia, dally in thesauri and etymologies and listen and be encouraged to sing along.
Sarah St Vincent Welch, Rochford Street Review
Susan Hawthorne's magical book is simply fantastic; quirky fun, highly intelligent and shines with imagination!! A montage of myth, fantasy, re-imagination, and reinvention. Poetry at its most extraordinary... and completely accessible. If you are not a poet, but love mythology and fantasy... READ THIS BOOK!!
Merry Gangemi, Goodreads
...Hawthorne's words here skim, swim and sing across the page in an endless delight of shapes, line lengths and verse forms that tantalise the eye and thrill the heart as they weave fantastically real stories
