Most of the contemporary poets and critics claim that epic is not suitable for our modern age. But Frederick Glaysher has proven them wrong. He has shown that if a poet has true dedication, if he has unshakable belief in humanity, spirituality and overall progress of human beings, if he hasn't already surrendered himself to the ugliness of decadence, it is possible for him to write an epic, even in modern age. "The Parliament of Poets" has all the grandeur, all the loftiness and qualities which ...more

I believe Frederick Glaysher's book, The Parliament of Poets, is one of the most important books of our times. In this grand sweeping epic, Glaysher has managed to live up to the task given to him by The Parliament of Poets. At a gathering on the moon of many of the most important poets of all time, Glaysher as the Persona is given the task of creating a new vision for humanity; one of Unity and Oneness of humankind. As he travels around the globe, throughout history, guided by the various poets ...more

"Very readable and intriguingly enjoyable. ...a masterpiece that will stand the test of time." - Poetry Cornwall, No.36, May 2013.

"A great epic poem of startling originality and universal significance, ingeniously enriching the canon of 'literary epics' while in every way partaking of the nature of world literature. ...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. .

Recommends it for: readers of classics; poets, history lovers, art lovers
(NOTE: I had to take a star off for the cover... this book deserves art as great as what is inside! I took another star off for the ending, which did not deliver the feeling I'd hoped for at the end. But then I added a star for Rosinante... because when do you ever get to see a horse on the moon? Ahem—now here is my review:)

It is possible you are already well-read and know the names of history’s great poets from every continent.

Homer, Virgil, Spenser, Milton, Austen, Keats, Wordsworth, Melville,
