Continent of Ghosts by Bill Bradd
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Poetry. You won't find CONTINENT OF GHOSTS being taught in an MFA program--it's too wild, it keeps you off balance and it breaks all the rules. Within a single poem you are swept away by the lyrical beauty of Bill Bradd's language, awed by the power of his words, and roaring with laughter at the hilarious juxtaposition of his images and overlapping narratives. It is a many- layered book of interlocking poems that seamlessly weaves the personal (the loss of his mother when he was two) with modern life (..".penthouses in New / York and wildcat buildings in the lower Eastside, where large men guard the door...") and with the Greek and Roman mythology of Aeneas, the loss of Troy and the founding of Rome, to explore the human condition and the search for identity. It is a tapestry of tales that shows that man's fate and the human condition has not changed much, if at all, over the past 3,000 years. This is a book by a master poet, a work of genius, one that you will want to read again and again and again.
