Poets, Prophets and Polymaths
In the words of author Eugene Fish, Poets, Prophets, and Polymaths is an artistic endeavor. Each page cuts to the raw heart of the matter, whether it tackles philosophy, the love of a child, religion, or revolution. This work is an exquisite and enlightened collection of poetic prose, written with all the truth and skill of the master poets.
Poets, Prophets, and Polymaths refreshingly challenges its readers, pleading for their ear, and entrusting them with sacred and fragile truths born from the beginning of time. Laced with inspiration from renowned philosophers, Poets, Prophets, and Polymaths defines itself as without definition. Through its five sections, Poets, Lovers, Children, Spirit, and Political Economy, this book offers an insightful and exciting perspective on the world.
The irresistible Helen of Troy is a stranger on the ferry. Salvation is achieved through the children. The First Man is the poet laureate of humanity, living his poetry in wordless, unreadable essence. Love is carnal desire manifested, an aching yearning for peace, and a cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Man is revealed as a sad and lonely beast, finding solace in quiet contemplation and violent outbursts.
Kierkegaard told the story of a troupe of village dancers, of one in particular who danced not for the audience, but for his fellow dancers. This book is for the fellow dancers, for an audience equally nostalgic for poetic idylls and eternity.
An insightful and pragmatic assessment of the universe, Eugene Fish speaks out from his officedom, pleading, presenting, and deconstructing the world.
