Visions of the Drowning Man is the third book of poetry from Glaswegian poet, musician and visual artist, Dee Sunshine. This series of poems reads like the last chimerical oracles of a doomed soul, pawing at the final waves of some foisted ontology. Sunshine submerges the reader in loosely unravelling contrapuntal rhythms and the breathless language that swirls between anguish and release. But the journey down the Dantean whirlpool is not all despair; there is the topography of Blake's archetypal grandeur to luxuriate in, as well as Baudelaire's dolorous sensuality. It is the poetic language of asphyxiation. This edition includes 21 spectacular full-page ink drawings. "His work reminds me of Blake's proverb about the road of excess leading to the palace of wisdom." - D.M. Thomas
