Poet Pricilla McGreer's Confessions of a Self-Loathing Narcissist presents an exploration of self-hood through the cosmic lens of astrology. Each poem in this series is inspired by and named a er one of the twelve houses of the zodiac, considering universal themes such as love, life, sex, death, childhood, and friendship that become profoundly personal within the verses. The brooding yet exultant musings of this poetry collection aptly takes its name from the Greek myth of the tragically self-obsessed Narcissus.Confessions of a Self-Loathing Narcissist is an inquest into the sometimes dreadful awakening that can only be ever so painfully gained through self-knowledge. The introspective honesty of the poetry in this collection opens a path to triumphant release from the enthrallment with misery and self-limitation that plagues our self-centred culture.

breast of his first love ... -from "House of Health"
