CHECKMATE By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $512.99

This poem published under a different title in 2013, and very different from what N. Boyle says in the Encyclopedia Britannica in 2014—“In a European perspective he appears as the central... More > and unsurpassed representative of the Romantic movement, broadly understood. He could be said to stand in the same relation to the culture of the era that began with the Enlightenment and continues to the present day as William Shakespeare does to the culture of the Renaissance and Dante to the culture of the High Middle Ages. His 'Faust', though eminently stageworthy when suitably edited, is also Europe’s greatest long poem since John Milton’s 'Paradise Lost', if not since Dante’s 'The Divine Comedy'.” The character of the poem at hand is “I” and is of some little interest because he has an aspect of the divine in the sense of The "Divine" Comedy. The new thing about this work is so much the fact that the poem will improve in translation.< Less

"I am the spokesman for this science," wrote Volterra once, "not its God. But the hell described SHALL happen just on the OFF chance IF there is another life." Fortunately if...

THE HEAVY MANTLED MIND By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $512.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
There is "Bible", its Asian Hebraism and its suicidal new testament (how did the PURPORTED Jesus, Paul, and Peter die?). Every step of throwing aside of "Bible" was an advance for... More > civilization, period. The strength of a religion is not the number of its followers nor its logos (the internal logic of which can be easily invented) but its depiction of pure psychology. If a book cannot get this world correct, how can it POSSIBLY be expected to get the next one right? This work gives a refreshing new look at psychology and metaphysics. In its middle is placed the conundrum of something called an indicatress. The solution is simple: "Would if she did not know/He would exist, to madness go."< Less

"In the last year, 2016-2017, more people were violently killed in Chicago than the total number by so-called terrorists (really terrorists only if they actually terrorize to insanity cowardly... More > westerners, and so not so-called) in the whole of Europe. But moslems are the new jews, to be persecuted by westerners, who pride themselves and always have since christianity took over in finding scapegoats to fool their publics, who are fools themselves." Just one of the passages in this delightful but unpredictable book.< Less

THE NOTABLES' INTENTIONS By VOLTERRA

Characters and situations ranging from a bondsman's influence on Aristotle to what happens during a two minute commerical break at a cable television studio. It is impossible to imagine that this... More > refreshing work was written entirely in a country gloomily cold and lacking in all culture whatsoever, Canada. The author was forced to reside in that backwaters to escape from the religious fanaticism of a country as utterly empty of culture but where the weather was warmer, brighter, cheering. He was happier there. To be performed, like the author's other collection of plays, on a single evening, and not a "chamber drama" like Milton's "Samson Agonistes," to be only read. As with Aeschylus and Shakespeare all merit will die with enactment. When Richard Burbage, the vehicle for Shakespeare's actors, died, so did acted versions of his plays.< Less
I By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $51.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
A novel composed in March to June, 1995, about the difference between the "I" and the "self" in a lone case of love between a man and a woman. A pure fantasy, in other words. It... More > would have been the greatest love story in world history if only it had been written in 2010 or later, since when the author lost interest in this sort of thing. Freud was the only one to have understood love correctly, as the sublimation of sexual desire, although the libido-unconscious need not be invoked to use the German equivalent of the word translated as sublimation; it is a pity that all of his other ideas are farragoes.< Less

One of the CHARACTERS in this work could have said, "Of those hateful women sing I/Who love to fornicate, and then lie and lie/And then after CONSENTING to MINDLESS satiation/Want insistently... More > the right to kill the result, abortion," created by the most apolitical of authors, who detests conservatives (secular, christian, judaic, islamic, confusionist, buddhist, shintoist, etc.) to introduce it to the general public. Too topical, it may need to be trashed. Not trashed only because Patient Trump took action a couple of weeks AFTER publication against Patient Putin, two characters in the work. Since this includes all at that place and pertains to this, "Little Ms Baldwin/Went to a talk-in/With CNN/'Man' Zakaria/ Who whitewashed Obamaeria/For Obe is black/and Z for all purposes black.

DISMALLY BALANCED By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $512.99

A play, but how, one asks, is the audience to understand it correctly? Theory, Marxian, Freudian, Foucaultian, Derridean, Bourdieusque, won't help with it. (Lear's and less Hamlet's thoughts are... More > Sh's, the rest being commercial inventions, and Julien's Stendhal's as he could not express them fully in his time except fictionally, and they explain the theorists more than they StSh. L's and J's ideas are applicable to themselves, but to say that the "Oedipal" complex denotes all means that from it only is deriving the theory and all others' theories, an impossibility in being reductio ad absurdum.) Among the panoply of this play's speaking and un-speaking characters the wisest is Candis, Candy. Play followed by a Shavianly bizarre essay. Stendhal, greatest writer, who routinely called in his letter to others his father, "the bastard," and Lear, are more disturbing than this play.< Less
