THE TAMING SHROUD
by Ed Webster
Collection of poems and pictures
published in 2016
Abstract : Torn between utopia and death, the poet, like a happy Sisyphus devoted to his absurd and mythical passion, fulfils his duty of explorer of the unexplorable, carving words which materialise through photo-poetic scenes with each turn of a page. Drifting into the turmoil of his own rebellion, the author accumulates volatile images that spin dreams, just like the words that intertwine them to defy nothingness. While the absurd can leave no one indifferent, love stands as a bulwark before getting swept away by the wind.
Haunted by Albert Camus’ genius which imparts a philosophical dimension and existential depth to this collection of dreamy poems and pictures, “THE TAMING SHROUD” by Ed Webster is an attempt to pay tribute to this acclaimed French author.
