The Angel of History

Mark Wilson

loneliness 
After the iconic, apocalyptic meditations of his second collection Passio Mark Wilson extends his canvas even further with The Angel of History. This series of longer sequences positively soars with both a semantic muscularity and a transcendent musicality which is reminiscent of Ezra Pound's Cantos and the later work of Geoffrey Hill. Taking inspiration from the compositions of Arvo Pärt and Keith Jarrett, the films of Andrei Tarkovsky as well as the philosophy of Plotinus and Walter Benjamin. The Angel of History is an ideogrammic cantata of intricate and strident beauty; a contemplative, but necessary, tesserae for disjointed times.
