Recensione

"A great epic poem of startling originality and universal significance, which is ingeniously enriching the canon of 'literary epics' while in every way partaking of the nature of world literature. Frederick Glaysher is in a creative dialog with the greatest epic poets of all time. He is bringing together in beautiful verse form...diverse visions of humanity from all over the world. ...frequently casting them in the form of spatial and cosmic imagery. That is very exalting to the reader's spirit. ...the 'oneness' of humankind in a different light. ...a pure joy; embodied in a literary work of fine verbal art, it is contemporary 'world literature' at its best." —Dr. Hans-George Ruprecht, CKCU Literary News, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.

"Very readable and intriguingly enjoyable. This epic poem is a journey through vision, thoughts and words of the likes of Cervantes, Basho, Shakespeare, Wordsworth, griots, shamans and many other notables, including Job and Merlin. “All humanity stood there with us. / We were not alone. We felt it. / The Love of the Unseen Essence, encircling us.” Frederick Glaysher’s hours of dedication have produced a masterpiece that will stand the test of time." —Poetry Cornwall, No.36, England.

"Most of the contemporary poets and critics claim that epic is not suitable for our modern age. But Frederick Glaysher has proven them wrong.... '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, 'The Parliament of Poets' is a song of unity, an audacious declaration that unity does not mean conformity, it means being in harmony. The poet himself is the main character of this epic poem, who travels to the moon, meets a large number of great poets and writers of the world, comes back to earth to have some glimpses of bygone times. Throughout the entire journey, many poets, writers, sages guide the poet and share their invaluable knowledge and insights." —Ratul Pal, Goodreads, Bangladesh.

"...a beautiful poem that falls off the tongue smoothly. All through this epic poem, the Poet of the Moon is addressing or discussing the Buddhist concept of Itai Doshin or the unity of the mind in the midst of diversity, which is also the concept that underpins the Ubuntu philosophy, which translates into 'I am, because we are'. The poet talks about peaceful coexistence, that oneness of us as a people of the earth and with our environment. He sees rapacious quest for wealth as unhealthy, impacting negatively on us as a people.... In effect the poet wants to see the unity of what he calls 'false dichotomies': science and religion, reason and intuition, material and spiritual, white and black, and others. ...an excellent piece of poetry." —Nana Fredua-Agyeman, ImageNations, Accra, Ghana, Africa.

"I found this book to be up to the standards set by Homer. ...This book also is very thought provoking as it brings into question what humanity is doing to the Earth and each other." —LibraryThing, Texas.
