Elizabeth Clayton announces the release of ‘Hinterland Rose’
TERRY, Miss., July 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In 1965, Elizabeth Clayton was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Nearly 10 years ago, the full press of rheumatoid arthritis also impinged on her body and psyche. But in spite of everything, she continued to write, with a will and a passion and began to choose alternate routes to achieve her metamorphosing goals.
In “Hinterland Rose” (published by Trafford Publishing), Clayton shares her poetry collection which becomes the rose which has journeyed out its hinterlands. These poems are categorized as “The Marrow Poems” which are about physical pain brought to ultimately bathe in sweet peace and a final respite, “Medicinal Poems” which evolved out of her desperate attempts at finding some solace in a difficult circumstance and “Hallucinatory Poems” which reminds her of a time, over which she has just passed and reminds her of a “long ago” that was dark and difficult and was beyond ordinary description. This collection also includes poetry in full verses that were written from 2017 to 2020 and more.
"As most individuals reach toward maturity, cognitively, physically, and emotionally, they become aware of some or many of the fundamentals which govern the process of living. Some of these principles are readily understood, while others are not. Many find, then, in this dissonance, the need for more clarity, and they seek for truth within themselves, their unconscious ‘rooms behind,’ and also support in wisdoms uncovered by the world's great thinkers, in literature, philosophy, and religion.”
“If these ‘seekers’ are resolute and strong, they can come to an acceptance, if somewhat forced, but with hope in a kind of resignation; in this state they can arrive at a productive acceptance which is, for mortals, not a bubbly happiness, but a contented bliss."
“Hinterland Rose” aims to remind readers that it is within their “rooms behind” (hinterlands) that they can find, if with much effort and often sorrow, the true meaning of “what it means to be happy.” For more details about the book, please visit https://www.amazon.com/Hinterland-Rose-Elizabeth-Clayton/dp/1490799907.
