I guess it was around two years ago that I came across a gold mine where the only digging to be done was turning the page. That is correct! It was a gold mine of words, original unseen poetry, inside two yellow-stained, old diaries that date between 1850 and 1893. I started reading the diaries and found myself back in time; I was walking with them, seeing what they saw, feeling what they felt, and meeting the queen. Because I am an avid lover of poetry and because of the way I felt after reading the diaries, I decided I had to share the gold with everyone. So here we are, two years later: Journey Back in Time, Volume 2 of 3. Each volume will hold over one hundred poems each. I want you to feel how they felt, see what they saw, hear what they said, live where they lived. So, as soon as you open the book to the first page, be ready. You might cry, you might laugh, you will be sad, and you will be happyvery religious timesbut together well go on a journey. A Journey Back in Time, Volume 2 of 3: Unseen Poetry from the 19th Century. The words are kept in their original format from the diaries, and misspellings are the same as in the original. I did not want to take anything away from the words or feeling they wanted us to hear by making corrections. What you will be reading is the original diary format. This is how they talked and wrote back then.

All things, seen and unseen

poems : new and selected, 1967-1997

Author: Dan Masterson

Publisher: Univ of Arkansas Pr


Category: Poetry

Page: 123

View: 6102

With clarity and precise detail, Dan Masterson creates a narrative of how we live, love, and die. In blank verse and rhymed stanzas, in free verse and taut lyrics, he delivers the story of a woman trapped in an avalanche, a husband daring himself to death in an ocean swim, or a son arranging the final affairs of his parents. There is always an edge to Masterson's characters - they are everyday people, but we meet them on the one day when the stakes are highest. Selected from thirty years of work, and including an eclectic selection of new poems, this book unfurls Masterson's full canvas of abilities: his penchant for startling descriptions, his keen insight into our nobility and fallibility, and his skill at making us live his poems.
