Read full description of the books:
This poetry caters to a certain audience. I don't mean to sound condescending, but certain literary allusions could easily be overlooked by the average reader. The author obviously possesses strong knowledge in anthropology, folklore and world religions in general. While I don't usually enjoy poetry, Archaic Freedom was a challenging, yet refreshing read for me on several levels.
Firstly, I had to re-read several of the poems in order to properly interpret the author's message. A few of them I just couldn't understand whatsoever without doing some research. Yes, I hate to admit it, but I had to.
Furthermore the author's command of figurative language astounded me. While in some ways, the verse was a bit superfluous and at times even excessive, I find merit in such portrayal even if at times I felt mired by the elocution. Shakespeare does the same thing to me, if you know what I mean. I enjoy it for what it is, but I don't necessarily want to read it alongside of the daily paper.
That point having been made, I am probably the most critical of poetry. The poems/poets that I appreciate are sparse and I am EXTREMELY persnickety. Most live poetry readings I have attended imbued a temporary gag-reflex increase in me and after more than five minutes I felt like ending it all... Cheesy one-man-band acts can do the same. I get the sense that I'm pacing around inside of my own head, wondering why I was born human and not a rat or a cockroach--whatever. Heuristically speaking, corny, blatant self-promotion tends to make me nauseous.
Yet surprisingly, Cannon's poetry compelled me to give poetry another chance. The elements of his ideas nudged me to consider the deeply inherent beauty of poetry as an artistic expression. His work provided a stimulating challenge that in some regards has left me stumped.
Clearly, the re-readability of this book of poetry remains unflinchingly high. I am sure I could pick it up now and flip through and read a verse, and find myself challenged at interpreting some missed point or literary allusion that floated off into the atmosphere. If you are a poetry lover, you will probably enjoy this composition. Why take my word for it? You can access this book on GR free of charge. Enjoy!
PS. I'm considering giving it another go
