Poetry by Emmanuel Attard Cassar
Woman in red is an examination of the human experience and an insight into the life perspective of one individual who is simultaneously a son, a husband, a father, a brother, a citizen and much more besides.
Humanity is laid bare in stanzas that reflect on the remarkable complexity and simplicity of existence.
The crude reflections on the afflictions of our modern times contrast with muses that reveal an admiration for authentic relationships and an appreciation for the female: the mother, the wife, the daughter, the woman in the street . . . the woman in red.
