The Fortune of a Fairy (Paperback)
The Fortune of a Fairy is the debut poetry book of musician and poet Margot White. It is a collection of sixty poems chronicling her adventures in Japan, England, America and Western Europe. Delving into the archetypal wisdom of global folklore, Nature, the Divine Feminine and esoteric teachings, Margot's poems move through fears of the unknown and nurture a sense of joy inherent in eternal curiosity and playfulness, At times the rules seem fixed for the identity of an artist; not so for White. An established poet in her own right, she is the winner of the Balcones' Poetry Prize in addition to having her poems published in numerous publications. Concurrently, she has been gaining a substantial audience through her music, often blurring the lines between where the poet ends and the musician begins.The work of a psyche seeking both independence and harmony with the Cosmos, The Fortune of a Fairy embodies the relentlessly imaginative perspective of a 21st century trobairitz with late night Gothic tales, rhythms from the Beats, and whispers of lyrics from the artist's accompanying EP. Keeping time to the pulse of White's great loves, the collection channels a wide range of visionaries such as Baudelaire, Hildegard von Bingen, Sappho, French contemporary Blaise Cendrars, the lieds of Clara Schumann, and many more innovators in the fields of music and literature into a singular and breathtakingly modern work of art..
