Welcome to Poetica Press, and allow us to introduce our
latest volume, Botanica Poetica: Herbs in Verse.
In her newest book, author Sylvia Chatroux, M.D., has applied her deft
poetic touch to the age-old topic of herbal healing by describing the
indications for, and applications of, 111 common herbs and botanical
Sylvia has pioneered the use of verse as a way of
bringing the richness of the healing arts to life. Her two previous works
include Materia Poetica, which covers
homeopathic remedies, and Medica Poetica, which
address a range of medial ailments. With her playful wit and keen eye for
the language, she has penetrated to the heart of these subjects. Her poems
are informative and endearing in equal measure.
Botanica Poetica is
richly illustrated with 18th and 19th century woodcuts of the herbs in the
poems, and luxuriously bound in hardcover with a satin ribbon.
