Slow Tears by Frieda Groffy
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As in her previous collection, The Janus in Me and Slow Tears have two themes. Love is constant but flees. However, fleeing includes many aspects. It may be the man on the run, or it may be the refugee. Aren't we supposed to flee from certain situations; to flee from a land of conflict teeming with wars, poverty, and violence? However, should we not flee from fear of responsibility, sorrow, pain, illness, or loss? Do we flee from ourselves to seek ourselves? Are these two different or, do they flow in a perpetual motion spiralling continuously into each other? Frieda Groffy, born in 1936, studied theatre at the Antwerp Conservatory. Hence, the ever-present urge to perform. She published the poetry collections, Self-Portrait in Patchwork, Cafe Oriental, La Mariposa, Siempre, The Janus in Me, and Vote with the Scars. They are available on various websites with literary works in Dutch and English, such as Meander, The Salon, Hernehim Culture, The Gardening/Creative Women, TimBookTu, Quiet Mountain Essays, The Artists for Human Rights Magazine, and others.
