Product description

Review

"Certainly wowed the crowd at the library with the performance and the words themselves." --Albany Poets News, New York

"A great epic poem of startling originality and universal significance, in every way partaking of the nature of world literature." --Hans Ruprecht, CKCU Literary News Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, author on Goethe, Borges, etc.

"A remarkable poem by a uniquely inspired poet, taking us out of time into a new and unspoken consciousness..." --Kevin McGrath, Lowell House, South Asian Studies, Harvard University, author on the Mahabharata

"Mr. Glaysher has written an epic poem of major importance that is guaranteed to bring joy and an overwhelming sense of beauty and understanding to readers who will travel the space ways with this exquisite poet. I am truly awed by this poet's use of epic poetry that today's readers will connect with, enjoy and savor every word, every line and every section. Frederick Glaysher is a master poet who knows his craft from the inside out, and this is truly a major accomplishment and contribution to American Letters. Once you enter, you will not stop until the end. A landmark achievement. Bravo! --ML Liebler, Poet, Department of English, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan

"And a fine major work it is." --Arthur McMaster, Department of English, Converse College, in Poets' Quarterly

"Very readable and intriguingly enjoyable. A masterpiece that will stand the test of time." --Poetry Cornwall, No. 36, England, UK

"Bravo to the Poet for this toilsome but brilliant endeavour." --Transnational Literature Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia

"Glaysher is really an epic poet and this is an epic poem! Glaysher has written a masterpiece..." --The Society of Classical Poets

"This Great Poem promises to be the defining Epic of the Age and will be certain to endure for many Centuries. Frederick Glaysher uses his great Poetic and Literary Skills in an artistic way that is unique for our Era and the Years to come. I strongly recommend this book to all those who enjoy the finest Poetry, and what is more, with a profound spiritual message for humanity." --Alan Jacobs, Poet Writer Author, London, UK

From the Inside Flap

"The Parliament of Poets: An Epic Poem," by Frederick Glaysher, takes place partly on the moon, at the Apollo 11 landing site, the Sea of Tranquility. Apollo, the Greek god of poetry, calls all the poets of the nations, ancient and modern, East and West, to assemble on the moon to consult on the meaning of modern life. All the great shades appear at the Apollo 11 landing site in the Sea of Tranquility: Homer and Virgil from the Greek and Roman civilizations; Dante, Spenser, and Milton hail from the Judeo-Christian West; Rumi, Attar, and Hafez step forward from Islam; Du Fu and Li Po, Basho and Zeami, step forth from China and Japan; the poets of the Bhagavad Gita and the Ramayana meet on that plain; griots from Africa; shamans from Indonesia and Australia; Murasaki Shikibu, Emily Dickinson, and Jane Austen, poets and seers of all ages, bards, rhapsodes, troubadours, and minstrels, major and minor, hail across the halls of time and space. One of the major themes is the power of women and the female spirit across cultures. Another is the nature of science and scientism, as well as the two cultures. As the Guides show the Persona crucial sites around the globe, such as Chartres Cathedral and the temples of Asia, Angkor Wat and elsewhere, the nature of social order and civilization in the regions of the past is explored. Modern twentieth century historical experience in all its glory and all its brutal suffering is fully confronted. The modern movement toward a global civilization is recognized and celebrated for the unprecedented future it opens to human beings. That transcendent rose symbol of our age, the Earth itself viewed from the heavens, one world with no visible boundaries, metaphor of the oneness of the human race, reflects its blue-green light into the darkness of the starry universe.
