On Daring to Eat the Pear: Heretical Narratives By Edward Simon

"On Daring to Eat the Pear" engages narratives of a heretical nature. Ancient blasphemies, and the remnants of dead faith all commingle. Simon tells stories in a language profound and... More > enigmatic. Simon mines alike the obscure and the famous of history to write poems that are only confessional to the nature of reality. In these pages you will find stories in poetry ranging from a blues singer named Cadmon (or Kadmon) Delph who generates reality with his guitar, to the surreal and magically realist story of idol smashers being chased away from a dissolved monastery by a screaming, burning statue of Christ. Simon's work consciously doesn't imitate the staid conventions of modern lyric poetry in either intent, structure or theme. The narratives are all unified by a deep seated desire to find a new verse, one that is able to explicate the many functions of our post-faith religious condition. Simon's poems are prayers to a God who isn't there.< Less
