maccus's Review of Yatagan by Caron

So here's where - Artemisia Absinthium - the Green Fairy lurks wearing Geoffrey Beene's 'Bowling Green' with celery on her breath. Somewhere, days before, brush fire charred a patch of woodland causing strange herbaceous wafts to rise which mingle with scents of men on small horses passing by in their quest for poetry by which to congratulate themselves.

Yatagan reduces to a stylistic caprice in which Artemisia masquerades as masculinity supported by a measured pine dominated by patchouli and brooding elements that might just as easily evoke the aura of a woman who works in the field and understands the seasons. It is as elegant as earthy and herbaceous can be.
