Two People: A Novel in Romantic Verse By Hank R. Schwab

This work, Two People: A Novel in Romantic Verse by Richard Dehmel, has never been translated before in whole from German to English. Hank Schwab knew this work as a student and began work on it in... More > his eighth decade, figuring he’d not finish it in his lifetime. He proved himself wrong. The “novel in verse” ranks as a major achievement in the high-German literary tradition of Goethe’s Faust. Schönberg used a section of the poem with startling effectiveness in his Verklärte Nacht. The work itself is an extraordinary manifesto on the transcendence of love and its all consuming creative and destructive power. The vast landscapes and cataclysmic storms these two lovers encounter in their progressive obsession and isolation is in the grand romantic tradition that evokes the nineteenth century American landscapes or exploits of the Victorian era explorers.< Less

A Wrinkle in Rhyme is a an adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s young adult novel A Wrinkle in Time, a story which so affected me that I felt compelled to respond to it in the most effective... More > and complimentary way to show how it has become a part of the very fabric of my own life. The characters Charles Wallace and his sister, Meg, are truly heroic in their devotion to their mother and in the improbable rescue of their father. Reading the novel was an unforgettable experience; writing the poem is my expression of gratitude. The Odes are meant to entertain and to enjoy. They do not pretend to tell what a Grecian Earns or bestow aethereal laurels to unworthy subjects. They simply take random subjects and give them meaning beyond their otherwise insignificant existence. The war poetry conveys the horrors of battle when it results in the senseless destruction of life. This last section is a work in progress epitomized by the classic portrayal of the death of Patroclus.< Less
