Prints in 3-5 business days
Of an eve in December 2013, the voice of Khalil Gibran visits Irish philosopher, poet, publisher, Richard of Éire while the latter is enjoying a cup of tea in a hotel lobby in Cork city in... More > Ireland. He has an extraordinary favour to ask. He explains that while he was in this life he had never produced a literary work dedicated to William Butler Yeats. He expresses that he has a growing need to sing a deeper song to the world; to build a greater tower in the sky which he would dedicate to Yeats. To give light of day to this aspiration he has sought out the attentive ear and diligent pen of Richard of Éire. Bradawn Yeats is this deeper song; this greater tower. This is a work that could also very well serve as an enlightening resource for both the everyday-in-the-world lay contemplative of any or no creed, and the cloistered; a means of introducing them to the possibility of familiar concepts having surprising and endless associations.< Less

Sissy Moral Universe By Christopher Yeates
Paperback: $14.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
If we can all agree that poetry, at least the stuff we choose to read, is not the pastoral conceit we were taught in high school but the spit, venom, and tears that come from our real flesh and blood... More > lives, then Christopher Yeates has provided a welcome addition to the world of poetry. In this collection, Yeates maps out a chart of his own troubled universe. But the pathos in Yeates' writing shouldn't be called wistful. He doesn't sit at home stewing like Emily Dickinson or dream of being pulled into the breast of Jesus like Gerard Manley Hopkins. Instead, he strikes out across the ocean and thrusts himself into the human throng. He revels and rejoices at times; he's often enthusiastic and bawdy, carousing with women and relishing in their allure and softness. This is a chronicle of travel, of frailty, of loss and lust and love and doubt. The writing is toxic yet tender, and with a keen and incisive eye this poet gives voice to the often profound complexities of everyday life.< Less
