The Kaleidoscope of Timeby India RUSSELL
The Kaleidoscope of Time reads as a story, the past merging with
India Russell is a poet of deep perception and empathy. Writing 'in the hymnic tradition', her work ranges from nature poetry, where 'the species boundary is crossed' to satirical and metaphysical. Her preoccupation is Time and the sudden breaking through of the timeless moment into the mutable world.
The Kaleidoscope of Time reads as a story, the past merging with the present as Time and Timelessness interweave through known and other dimensions: childhood, family, society, lost loves, dreams and visions with the underlying question of the eternity of the soul and whether, like Donne, we can finally say 'Death thou shalt die'.
