Hekate – Nicola Nathan



A new poetry pamphlet by Nicola Nathan.

The Goddess Hekate is discovered in her many guises. Hekate as healer, as the triple-headed goddess of the crossroads, as goddess of dreams and oracles, holder of keys to the underworld, has been a figure in myth and literature for thousands of years. Nicola Nathan’s haunting, deeply-felt poems celebrate Hekate as blood-sister to all women, but also as confessor and confidante; they address the goddess with urgency, in the expectation of being heard.

‘In these magical, visceral, beautifully-crafted poems, Nicola Nathan conjures Hekate with such cunning that the goddess herself begins to emerge, tantalisingly, in shadows and glimmers, from this extraordinary sequence.’

John Burnside
