I am intrigued by the possibility of purchasing/acquiring a Bantock poster of some sort as others have mentioned here. Please let me know if this is possible and if so, how it can be acquired? Also, all this discussion of duende is wonderful and Garcia Lorca is a rich source. His poems are rampant with the concept and he has explored it quite a bit. While I was involved in the owrld of poets before reading the forgetting room, I believe I may have never discovered Lorca (perhaps) without Nick Bantock. So, thank you. I have written before that The Forgetting Room and the The Venetian's Wife are the most powerful (for me)of your books, Nick (may I call you Nick?) and I really believe that their element of investigation of the past is what hooks me. I have embarked on my own research in my family's past in order to find connections and it is amazing what is revealed in artwork, letters and other artifacts. While this instance is slightly different than your works, I very much felt a personal bond when reading The Forgetting Room. Thank you and I very much look forward to receiving my copy of Alexandria.
