dc.description.abstractNow, six years later, I at last get to catalogue this booklet of about 24 pages. Milesian Tales are generally known, I believe, as saucy tales. The expression tends to suggest tales of love and adventure of the sort strung together in Apuleius' Golden Ass or Margaret of Navarre's Heptameron. The genre seems to be tied especially to Aristides, a writer, says Wikipedia, of shameless and amusing tales with some salacious content and unexpected plot twists. Lykiard speaks here in his introduction of this booklet as the result of an experiment of a poetry-journal. There is plenty of reference to the Irish setting in which the book was written. I find fewer Aesopian references, in fact only one that I catch in a poem titled Progression: Here, our whole life/ becomes a poem./City strife, country home. I find here a lovely echo of TMCM. Perhaps I miss other Aesopic references. The poems do express in engaging fashion the love of nature and the sense of exile that he refers to in that introduction. There are a number of tributes from fellow poets on the back cover.en_US
