Philippics By Richard David Kennedy
eBook (PDF): $3.69
Wryly titling this offering Philippics to mimic the biblical Epistle to the Philippians, Kennedy presents an array of new verse having a largely religious theme. Paired with his masterful satirical... More > epic, Samsson, that parodies the man, God and religion triad, the reader is, once again, challenged to “think” and possibly reexamine his or her personal beliefs about God and man, but most of all themselves.

HOUSE OF DECEMBER Including Selections from Words, And There Are Five Seasons and Interlude Seven magnificent new poems and selections from two previously published collections available only in... More > hard-to-obtain privately printed editions comprise Richard David Kennedy’s HOUSE OF DECEMBER. Its author obviously sees “things clearly ...and whole,” to quote E. M. Forster in Howard’s End, and he has also realized Forster’s admitted intention as voiced in the frontispiece of that novel: “To connect…” The poems on physical nature, fleshly and spiritual love, the creative act, and time, all echo Kennedy’s concern with the sanctity of the individual and the presence of the godhead in each and every one. The poet’s technical virtuosity adds further complexity and density to his profound ideas. He makes us see things not only clearly and whole, but differently than before, the mark of an artist of the first rank. PAPERBACK EDITION< Less
