2016: A Year of Poetry

210 pages32 minutes


Most of the poems in this collection were written during 2016. As with the previous two years' collections, the subject matter is diverse with love, hate, murder, nature, social and political commentary, and many other topics being explored. However, this one has a stronger philosophical presence than they did, since many of the poems are reflective or speculative in nature and some relate to specific philosophical or religious questions (particularly the mind-body problem and what happens when we die), philosophers (Plato, Hume), or historical / mythological figures (Homer, Sisyphus, Prometheus).
