Pages : 432

Book Description
Onyx Rose Onyx Rose bathes in imagery, passion, and beauty that changes lives. The metaphors and similes are unique and rare. Breathing rarefied air, this collection motivates you to think while acting and weep while laughing. The philosophy and metaphysics are complicated yet simple, swaying reason and underscoring logic. This verse is humanity squared. It gazes into God's stained glass eyeballs while searching for the human heartbeat and soul hymn. As the son of two Czech WWII heroes, Radomir Vojtech Luza understands patriotism, love of politics, labor, and art. He lives to write poetry. There is nothing else he would rather be doing. He sings the body poetic. His passion for the written and spoken word has turned him into the prolific, award-winning poet he is. The thirty-one books (twenty-seven collections of poetry) this poet laureate and Pushcart Prize nominee has written, prove that he is prepared and equipped philosophically, intellectually, and metaphysically to pen a poetic tome of this depth, clarity, and resonance. Onyx Rose is substantive and wild. It touches on America today, crazy and curious. The poetry is raw, naked, profound, and deeply specific, molesting myths and raping riverbeds of retreat. This collection opens doors that were previously closed shut, putting it back in the high life again. Onyx Rose lets love lead the way, for better or worse, displaying an original and uncommon style aimed at verse true, tender and timeless. This is a lion looking for red meat, a shark crushing thigh and bone, oh, so sweet. Radomir Vojtech Luza--April 25, 2020

The Short Writings of Nelson Algren

The Short Writings of Nelson Algren PDF Book Detail Author: Richard F. Bales
Publisher: McFarland
ISBN: 1476681325
Category : Literary Criticism
Languages : en
Pages : 271

Book Description
Nelson Algren was a renowned Chicago writer known for his social commentary and his novels like The Man with the Golden Arm and A Walk on the Wild Side. Although he continues to be remembered almost exclusively for his novels, this book aims to highlight the value and influence of his short form works. Before he died in 1981, Algren had amassed a genre-defying body of work, including short stories, articles, poems and book reviews. The present book features a comprehensive analysis and discussion of Algren's lost literature, including everything but his novels. One of the pieces covered is a masterpiece of race relations written in 1950, more than 60 years before the galvanization of the Black Lives Matter movement. Another is a scathing poem about Algren's transatlantic love affair with Simone de Beauvoir. Both items are reprinted in the book courtesy of the Algren estate. This book also includes references to Algren's works that have yet to be studied by Algren scholars.
