THE POETIC BOND IV

ISBN 978-1503034525, published 14 November 2014

Once again, poetry curator/editor Trevor Maynard has come up with a fascinating and eclectic mix of new poetry from across the globe, and this year the themes reflect a darker more pragmatic zeitgeist.  Poets are concerned with consumerism, loss and illness, and the place of Mankind within Nature; though that is not to say there isn’t humour among the pathos, and, as always, a general aspiration to bring light to a darkening world.

Poetry that explores, illuminates and examines the Human Condition

POETRY THAT BONDS US

Poetry of the MOMENT, from across the PLANET, poetry of our WORLD

THE POETIC BOND IV

Poetry from

Afghanistan, Canada, China, Eire, Norway, UK, US,

 

Twenty-five poets from seven countries were selected through a submission process in which there were no restrictions on form, style, length of subject; instead the choices made were on the basis of emergent themes and congruency in the pool of work; a snapshot of the poetry of new media NOW, seeking to capture the zeitgeist of the moment.

 

“Poetry, both reveals and shares our humanity”

 (Trevor Maynard, editor The Poetic Bond Series)
