May the tides of "fashion" be cursed so that
the true note can be heard.
What a spirit he is. His poetry bedazzles.
Beam is one of North Carolina's polished
Jeffery Beam's poems provide a wide range of pleasures. Herein find children's lullabies, love poems, minimalist flowers, surrealist rifts, metaphysical and spiritual excursions into the natural world, sexual adventure, medieval-inspired songs, and eastern infused lyrics. Chosen from two unpublished scripts, one work-in-progress, and nine published works, these poems explore the relationship between the physical and the spiritual through natural history, the vagaries of love and attraction, myth, dream, perennial philosophy, and the senses.
Enhanced by multimedia through the visual art of Dürer, James McGarrell, Baron Von Gloeden, Andrea del Sarto, Ippy Patterson, David Terry, and others; complemented by video clips of readings, artist portraits, essays by and about the poet, review excerpts, poem texts, and original compositions by Oboist and composer Bo Newsome; see why poet Kenny Fries in The San Francisco Bay Times declared Beam's work "an essential antidote to our time."
This CD contains audio tracks playable in a standard audio system as well as multimedia playable on a personal computer. IBM and Mac compatible.
