New Book SUBJECT MATTERS is a True Poetic Treat

NEW YORK (PRWEB) March 28, 2014

Throughout history, poetry has been a constant presence in human civilization. This is due to the fact that poetry is considerably one of the purest art forms that allow one to fully express ones perceptions on life and share ones emotions to a multitude of people. In SUBJECT MATTERS, author Tony Sanders has created a truly masterful collection of poetry that shows his passion for the art.

SUBJECT MATTERS is a collection of prose poems that brings to mind the static magic of Robbe-Grillet’s SNAPSHOTS or the haunting precision of Killarney Clary’s WHO WHISPERED NEAR ME. As the title implies, the subject does matter. Sanders allows his imagination to unleash itself in search of salvation much more than knowledge. If the reader feels on unsure footing in these mostly tri-partite pieces, it is because the author does too, with glee. No stone is left unturned as Sanders careens from poem to poem. The parade of images and pageant of emotion in the end is both delightful and disturbing. As the poet writes, “the empire of ego was spellbound” and remains so.

This beautiful compilation of poems is influenced by a multitude of poets that the author has admired all his life. SUBJECT MATTERS is truly a poetic treat.
