Scintillata Nee is an extraordinary, experimental volume of verse by young author Cynthia Tenor. While the poems take the reader through the development of a personal relationship, the text is expressed in highly unusual terms: words are often chosen for their sound and/or etymology and rather than for their more obvious meaning. Strange and imaginative coinings of new words are dotted throughout the text, while many of the poems also include deliberate archaisms to evoke the history of English literature.
The collection ends with a handful of original Greek poems (along with their English translations), reflecting the author’s background.

Cynthia Tenor is an aspiring author who holds teaching qualifications from a UK university. Her writing style is strongly influenced by the precision and perceptiveness of academic language, albeit fused with a more friendly approach intended to appeal to readers.
