Amazing. This is a sort of a horror show for children, but fascinating, too. Where did you find them, if I may ask?
Thanks Natasha. I found them while trolling a Danish auction site for something completely different! I love the internet.
Ahhh, "poetry for melting children" - what a great name. I wonder if this was a book people read to their kids to scare them into being good.
These are wonderful! I recently read Mandelstam's memoir of his childhood in pre-revolutionary Russia: fascinating stuff, but nothing like these!
Nothing new under the sun...that melts.
