The Parliament of Poets: An Epic Poem

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

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

"Mr. Glaysher has written an epic poem of major importance... truly a major accomplishment and contribution to American Letters. Once you enter, you will not stop until the end. A landmark achievement." —ML Liebler, Department of English, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan

"And a fine major work it is." Arthur McMaster, Department of English, Converse College, South Carolina; Contributing Editor, Poets' Quarterly

"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. A profound spiritual message for humanity." —Alan Jacobs, Poet Writer Author, London, UK

"Don't be intimidated by an epic poem. It's really coming back to that image of the storyteller sitting around the campfires of the world, dipping into and weaving the story of humanity, in the most beautiful, mellifluous language." —Miriam Knight, New Consciousness Review radio, Portland, Oregon

"I am in awe of the brilliance of this book! Everyone must read this book." —Anodea Judith, Novato, California, author of The Global Heart Awakens

 

What others have written about Frederick Glaysher

"In an era in which the value of human life has become as precarious and narrow as the study of the humanities itself, we need Glaysher’s voice more than ever.” —Phillip M. Richards, Department of English, Colgate University, New York

"In short this is a book I'll be returning to for the rest of this year and no doubt afterward. I'm glad it exists and I'm grateful for the wisdom it sends my way." —Laurence Goldstein, Department of English, University of Michigan

"A litany of horrors updating Eliot’s Waste Land, the book upbraids poets for turning inward only to concerns of the self." —Vince Gotera, North American Review

"His poetry is fluid and rhythmic. ...thoughtful and provocative." M. Scott Douglass, Main Street Rag

"At high points, his poetry captures the feelings of contingency and horror felt by many but expressed well by few... Glaysher fits well within the literary tradition, as he shows with his allusions to or mentions of, among others, Augustine, Dante, Yeats, Dostoyevsky, and Hayden; however, his voice is distinct. Among contemporary poets, few have a vision as darkly haunting... Few also have the knowledge and the ability to handle contemporary issues with such presence of language. Out of the mass of recent poetry books, here is one you should read." —William AllegrezzaJack Magazine 

"Powerful poetry." Katnip Reviews

"Fred Glaysher takes us on a journey to that larger dimension of responsibility where thought meets action. This is a poetry of connectedness, which asks us to bring together broken parts of our cultures (both East and West) and search for a new identity, perhaps a new world order. His finely crafted poems are accessible and have a purpose that needs to be heard." —WPON Interview

"A poetic reflection on postmodern life, with a particular focus on the limitations of both Eastern and Western thought. Collectively offers a higher path to universality for our future." EdwardHamilton

"Glaysher pays his readers the compliment of assuming that they will have at least a basic familiarity with the major world classics and philosophies of both East and West." Manifold 44

"It is argued that now poets must turn to contemplating the real world and Glaysher is remarkable in his achievement of this. It is excellent poetry; his words and images hit you right in the gut. Well worth reading." Poetry Greece

"Mr. Glaysher writes with a genuine passion, with an obvious thrill at the play of ideas, and with an often compelling sense of purpose." Brothersjudd

"Poet Frederick Glaysher in these essays comments on a variety of literary and social issues, ranging from the plays of Sophocles, and the major works of Japanese literature, to the loss of religion and spirituality in modern society and literature." —“New Titles Elected for Essay and General Literature Index
