Product description

Review

"A remarkable poem by a uniquely inspired poet, taking us out of time into a new and unspoken consciousness..." —Kevin McGrath, Poet, Lowell House, South Asian Studies, Harvard University"

This Great Poem promises to be the defining Epic of the Age and will be certain to endure for many Centuries. Frederick Glaysher uses his great Poetic and Literary Skills in an artistic way that is unique for our Era and the Years to come. I strongly recommend this book to all those who enjoy the finest Poetry, and what is more, with a profound spiritual message for humanity." —Alan Jacobs, Poet Writer Author, President of the Ramana Maharshi Foundation, London, UK

"The purpose of the spiritual journey of the Poet of the Moon is to seek deliverance of the modern human from the captivity of nothingness, nihilism and atheism, and from the resulting chaos and chasm of soul. From the versatile he gets scores of life-affirming lessons, yet the core meaning of all is that the Supreme Being as well as the earth is one, and so human beings are one nation irrespective of their clan, class, color, race, religion and gender. In this earth human beings are part of the Great Mystery’s creation and their duty is to keep the balance and harmony of the universe, to achieve union, to choose sacrifice, and to be self-controlled. In this manner Glaysher sings the song of ‘one Earth, without borders, Mother Earth, her embrace encircling one people, humankind'. The lucid and placid feet of the language moves deftly and smoothly from the beginning up to the last line of the poem. Bravo to the Poet for this toilsome but brilliant endeavour." —Umme Salma, Department of English, Islamic International University, Chittagong, Bangladesh, in Transnational Literature, Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia

"The review [by Umme Salma] has evocatively summed up the stylistic and thematic magnificence of The Parliament of Poets: An Epic Poem. A contemporary classic! Highly recommended for reading." —Nishat Haider, Associate Professor, Lucknow University, Lucknow, India"The Parliament of Poets has all the grandeur, all the loftiness and qualities which make an 'effort for an epic' a 'true epic.' In essence, a song of unity, an audacious declaration that unity does not mean conformity, it means being in harmony." —Ratul Pal, Goodreads, Rajshahi, Bangladesh

"Mr. Glaysher has written an epic poem of major importance that is guaranteed to bring joy and an overwhelming sense of beauty and understanding to readers who will travel the space ways with this exquisite poet. I am truly awed by this poet's use of epic poetry that today's readers will connect with, enjoy and savor every word, every line and every section. Frederick Glaysher is a master poet who knows his craft from the inside out, and this is really truly a major accomplishment and contribution to American Letters. Once you enter, you will not stop until the end. A landmark achievement Mr. Glaysher. Bravo! —ML Liebler, Poet and Senior Lecturer, Department of English, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan"

A great epic poem of startling originality and universal significance, ingeniously enriching the canon of 'literary epics' while in every way partaking of the nature of world literature." —Dr. Hans-George Ruprecht, CKCU Literary News, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada

"And a fine major work it is." —Arthur McMaster, Contributing Editor, Department of English, Converse College Poets' Quarterly (Spring 2015), in "My Odyssey as an Epic Poet: Interview with Frederick Glaysher." --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Frederick Glaysher studied writing with the poet Robert Hayden, who was one of W. H. Auden's students at the University of Michigan in the early 1940s, edited both Hayden's Collected Prose and Collected Poems, and has written or edited several books.He lived for more than fifteen years outside Michigan—in Japan, where he taught at Gunma University in Maebashi; in Arizona, on the Colorado River Indian Tribes Reservation, site of one of the largest internment camps for Japanese-Americans during WWII; in Illinois, on the central farmlands and on the Mississippi; ultimately returning to his suburban hometown of Rochester. A Fulbright-Hays scholar to China in 1994, he studied at Beijing University, the Buddhist Mogao Caves on the old Silk Road, and elsewhere in China, including Hong Kong and the Academia Sinica in Taiwan. While a National Endowment for the Humanities scholar in 1995 on India, he further explored the conflicts between the traditional regional civilizations of Islamic and Hindu cultures and modernity. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
