The Song of the Cane


The Song of the Cane

£18.00

The Song of the Cane

The rattan cane is the most painful of all instruments of punishment. It stings, leaves marks and evokes noisy responses; and nobody who has ever been disciplined by one will ever forget the experience. From quite another point of view, a cane is light, long-lasting, and a sensuous delight to use. Its accuracy is phenomenal: it is astonishingly economical of effort; and makes a music like no other implement. The Song of the Cane is an anthology of writing—fiction, poetry and factual accounts—carefully selected to provide the broadest possible view of this most dreaded of all implements of correction. Edited by Jacqueline Ophir.
