Product Description: Cloud & Ashes collects three Winter's Tales ("Jack Daw's Pack," "A Crowd of Bone," and the longest, "Unleaving") centering on folk traditions, harvest rites, the season, gods, and trickster figures.
Cloud & Ashes is a work that reaches back to the richness of Shakespeare--Gilman understands that the depth of Shakespeare's work lies in his range--and the reader will rejoice in her counterplay of high myth and bawdry even while being drawn into the world of Cloud.
Inventive, playful, and erudite, Gilman is an archeolexicologist rewriting language itself in these long-awaited tales.
