About this book

Stigmata | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies

Tom Gouws

Stigmata is the miraculous appearance of wounds like those of Christ on the hands, feet and bodies of human beings.

The title is especially relevant to the religious poems in this collection, but also touches on human pain and estrangement in this world and becomes a metaphor for writing poetry.
