Riassunto: In this book on love, you will the poetry of Shaun T. Griffin. You will see poets letting their words pierce through prison bars with Ismael Santillanes returning; Robert Gonzales and David Ansgar Nyberg. In his essay, John Fielding evokes the Nuremberg trials, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, love made shadow, then deleted by war victors. Then there is violence and fear in C.S. Fuqua's fiction; something lacking entering the life of a businessman in "Sophie," Hugues Récamier's play. The Italian voice of poet Alfredo de Palchi brings irony, boldness, a byzantine approach to love. Stephanie Dickinson mentions "terrorist anthrax attacks" in a piece written before the recent U.S. anthrax crisis. Old age and c-section are part of Alana Merritt Mahaffey's poetry. Robert Kupitz finds a poignant point of view with his narrator who "ended up in . . . jail, which felt like vacation compared to where [she] had been." From Luxembourg, Emile Hemmen's verses emerge like caressing reveries, enigmatic dreams of light.
Ralph Greco stages domestic problems under their various forms and with a sense of derision. Barbara Carle ponders over fragmented self and tormented love. A young Viking woman of the 11th Century and the awakening of her sensuality are depicted by Mariposa. Sentiments travel in mixed waves with the use of one single word in "You," a play by J. Weintraub. Identity absorbs poet Colleen Donnelly in "Writing the I." In "A Slender Bridge," Sally Foskett tells of the rape and lost illusions of an aspiring actress. With David Myers, layered aspects of reality and a heightened sense of self through unconditional love have major roles in his play within a play. In "Prayers," Richard Martin finds erotism in words. Eric Basso returns with poems of passion, lust and beauty. Love and death infiltrate Pearl Canick Solomon's existential short story. Tension rises and unreciprocated love is revealed in Moss Kaplan's drama, "The Roots of American Dialogue." The murder of his mother seriously tempts Richard Krause's narrator in "The Door." It's "wicked amour" and "self-debasement" which preoccupy poet Cynthia-Maria Phillips. With Jo Santiago, a woman is caught between love, laughter, and maybe breast cancer.
In these tales and essay and dramas and poems, you will find love and its peaks, its canyons, its caverns, its sun. You will also find its absence –crawling in like a disease. Yet, even when a piece recounts hate, the carburetor is undeniably the writer's love for words. The same goes for reviewers. To the love of words is added the love of books. Chances are that most reviewers want to read a masterpiece every time they are handed a new novel or poetry collection. (When they are disappointed and give a negative review, it's not out of spite for a book, it's out of love for what they feel a book should be.) Here, we have a trio of first rate reviewers: Robert Kupitz examining Don Nash's poetry collection, Odd Rhymes from Urban Nowhere; Eleanor ter Horst analyzing The Fantastic Ordinary World of Lutz Rathenow: Poems, Plays and Stories, and Lore-Etta McNaughton digging in Edvard Hoem's Ave Eve: A Norwegian Tragedy.
And then we have the artists. I wanted to show another face of Afghanistan besides the one the media have banged on us. A native of this land, Omar Zekrya presents images of traditional Persian culture with his usual grace and refinement. Jody Foreman's photos titled "Passion," "Soulmates," "Child Caught Between Two Parents' Addictions," "Innocence" and "Phoenix Rising" illustrate an original and powerful vision. On page 1, Lore-Etta displays a child, her isolation in this world. It is a piece I commissioned to show that in today's political decisions children are often the last priorities when they should always be the first. (Perhaps the presence of Mattie Stepanek, the kid who exalts his MS with courage and hope, with poetry, will make a difference.) On the front cover, which is based on a series –"Aphrodite Watching" – one of f
