Articles
'I am as brown as brown can be, And my eyes as black as sloe; I am as brisk as brisk can be, And wild as forest doe.' (The Child Ballads, 295) So begins a beautiful tale of love, loss and revenge. Following the seasons, 'A Pocketful of Crows' balances youth and age, wisdom and passion and draws on nature and folklore to weave a stunning modern mythology around a nameless wild girl. Only love could draw her into the world of named, tamed things. And it seems only revenge will be powerful enough to let her escape.
