Review

"Like a story around a campfire." —The Audience

"Certainly wowed the crowd at the library with the performance and the words themselves." Albany Poets News, New York

"A great epic poem of startling originality and universal significance, in every way partaking of the nature of world literature." —Hans Ruprecht, CKCU Literary NewsCarleton University, Ottawa, Canada, author of numerous books and articles on semiotics, Goethe, Thomas Mann, Hugo, Borges, etc.

"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, author of several books on the Indian Mahabharata

"Mr. Glaysher has written an epic poem of major importance that is guaranteed to bring joy and an overwhelming sense of beauty and understanding to readers who will travel the space ways with this exquisite poet. I am truly awed by this poet's use of epic poetry that today's readers will connect with, enjoy and savor every word, every line and every section. Frederick Glaysher is a master poet who knows his craft from the inside out, and this is truly a major accomplishment and contribution to American Letters. Once you enter, you will not stop until the end. A landmark achievement. Bravo! —ML Liebler, Poet, Department of English, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan

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

"Glaysher is really an epic poet and this is an epic poem! One fabulous quality of this poem is its clarity and luminous quality... Easy to understand and follow. A poet writing for people... Glaysher has written a masterpiece... I strongly recommend his poem." —James Sale (UK), The Society of Classical Poets

"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, and what is more, with a profound spiritual message for humanity." —Alan Jacobs, Poet Writer Author, President Ramana Maharshi Foundation, London, UK

"Very readable and intriguingly enjoyable. A masterpiece that will stand the test of time." Poetry Cornwall, No. 36, England, UK

"Bravo to the Poet for this toilsome but brilliant endeavour." —Umme Salma, International Islamic University, Department of English Language and Literature, Chittagong, Bangladesh, in Transnational LiteratureFlinders University, Adelaide, Australia

"I am in awe of the brilliance of this book! Food for the soul, and answers to humanity's most pressing problems, right where they belong, in the epic poetry of all the teachers, magicians, prophets, shamans, and poets of all time... Everyone must read this book, especially if you enjoy literature, wisdom, and philosophy." —Anodea Judith, Novato, California, author of The Global Heart Awakens

"You know how on space probes they have these little goodie bags full of things. It is my feeling that they should include a copy of The Parliament of Poets, because it gives this overview, this panorama of the best of human civilization, the voice of her poets, the voice of her dreamers and thinkers, and with great honor to each of them, and so I do want to commend the book to our listeners. 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. Thirty years were not wasted. If anybody listening has contacts to NASA..." —Miriam Knight, New Consciousness Review radio, Portland, Oregon
