Tucson, AZ, June 21, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Anaphora Literary Press (www.anaphoraliterary.com) is excited to promote A Communion of Saints. Terence Culleton’s debut collection of original poetry has assembled a conclave of fictional saints whose legends, lives, libidinous sin quests, sonnets, and songs reverberate with the heroic loneliness of the human condition. These men and women starve, flagellate, isolate, and emasculate themselves in order to transcend the fleshly condition. Some achieve transcendence, others fail, but their efforts are recounted in impeccably crafted verse, metered and rhymed, ironic and raucous, invested with a spectral and irreducible sense of mystery. In these poems, imagination marries itself to form: the issue is a true communion of souls.
“Culleton gives free rein to his lively imagination and mischievous sense of humor... But although the poems are often wildly funny, they usually serve to elucidate some nugget of philosophy or spiritual angst, and many resonate with an almost unearthly beauty...”— Editor Anna Evans (Barefoot Muse and the Rainbow Reviw), review in The Schuylkill Valley Journal.
Terence Culleton lives and teaches in Newtown, PA. A former Bucks County Poet Laureate and a semifinalist in The Nation/Poetry contest, Mr. Culleton reads widely throughout the Philadelphia area, as well as in northeastern Pennsylvania and New York City. He has published poems in The Amherst Review, The Birmingham Review, The Cumberland Review, Edge City Review, Janus, The Schuylkill Valley Journal (featured poet), and various other magazines and journals, and has appeared on television and radio shows in both the Philadelphia area and New York City. His poems have been featured on NPR.
