Conceived of as a journey within a book, a journey in both geographical and spiritual terms, The Dreaming House is an anthology of poems in two parts. The first, titled ' The Voyage Out', is composed of poems on people the author has met whether in real or imaginary life. The second, 'The Country Beyond', focuses almost in a trance of delight on the natural world and its ability to change human beings. Tanya Mendonsa's language, by turns poignant and muscular, is lyrical and contemporary, yet it is obvious that she is rooted in poetic traditions going far back in time. Here is a strikingly individual, strong and joyous voice raised in poetry, graced with rare charm and insight.
