Listen to (Skip BBC NEWS. June 18, 2013) "FREDERICK GLAYSHER in conversation about his great epic poem of startling originality and universal significance, THE PARLIAMENT OF POETS, which is ingeniously enriching the canon of 'literary epics' while in every way partaking of the nature of world literature." —Dr. Hans-George Ruprecht, CKCU Literary News, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. Includes two excerpts from The Parliament of Poets: An Epic Poem. Direct from this server Here 26 minutes. (Skip BBC)

"With his new book, THE PARLIAMENT OF POETS, Frederick GLAYSHER is in a creative dialog with the greatest epic poets of all time. He is bringing together in beautiful verse form, tending, as he writes 'to the iambic pentameter, depending on thought and need', diverse visions of humanity from all over the world. Frederick Glaysher's poetic imagination is frequently casting them in the form of spatial and cosmic imagery. That is very exalting to the reader's spirit. What is more, in reading his new book one is not only compassing, beyond the horizon of empirical facts, a borderless world, but one is also beholding the 'oneness' of humankind in a different light. • 'The Parliament of Poets' (Earthrise Press, 2012) by Frederick Glaysher is a pure joy; embodied in a literary work of fine verbal art, it is contemporary 'world literature' at its best." Dr. Hans-George Ruprecht, CKCU Literary News, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. August 6, 2013. — ENCORE 26 minutes. (Skip BBC)
