Sinfonia 9: The Second Movement By Alvin Conway

If the Age of Reason was the masculine Yang, then it can be said Romanticism, invariably, was its creative feminine counterpoint, the Yin. Plato’s argumentative philosophical essays in The... More > Republic on the dynamism and contrast between sense (the head) and sensibility (the heart) was Kant’s discourse on phenomenon and its antipode, noumenon. Mathematics is abstract form but it is not beauty. A rose is beauty but it is not abstract form. The language of mathematics in scientific realism became a central component of the Age of Reason. In contrast, the language of the rose expressing abstract sentiment became a central component of Romanticism. Blake’s tyger is seen as raging and burning bright while Poe’s dreams come quietly in the dark of night. Both poets used Romantic language and allegories to convey different aspects of reason, sentiment, and intuition. The poet could not live his experience with his audience symbiotically but they could share in his experience empathically through his gift of words.< Less

There was a time long ago, when wonder, beauty, and the enchantment of love ruled the human imagination. In that fabled eon of time, long forgotten- the exotic, idyllic delight of the garden... More > challenged the practicality of the city. Analogously, the beauty and frailty of flower opposed the brute power of the metal sword. Callidora is that garden of otherworldly delight, where flowers, love, and the symbolic language of beauty struggled for supremacy with the lust for power on the stage of the human experience. It is a time in our remote past, which speaks to us of the aesthetic graces of beauty, and the benevolence and ultimate reach of love. These are some of the very romantic virtues which have been smothered by time, in our pursuit of new technical age with its cold, and automated virtual communal environment. Take a journey back to the ancient past, through the eyes of Romanticism.< Less

And from this spinning wheel of creation, bliss, and chaos, emotions and words were delicately weaved into poetry.< Less

There are poems about love and hate, joy and pain, desire and loss, life and death, nature and technology, as well as a host of others. The subjects range across the spectrum of human reflection on the very nature of experiential living. The book is more than a mere collection, however, and represents an intriguing puzzle through the content, layout and construction itself.< Less
