Pre-Canto & Canto I (english poetry)

Cantos1Cantos2Cantos3Cantos4Cantos5Cantos6


So, bear with me here; I know it’s not great, but I was mashing my brain against this first Canto without any true necessity. Poems like these require a certain heaviness I cannot fully achieve (just yet), my poetry still draws much from my own levity as a person. That being said, the form is still ridiculously volatile, and I apologise for that. So far, The Shades are mostly lyrical, Cocytus is mostly expositive and Luriam is mostly confessional. I would like to keep it that way, but still need to work on their cohesion and how the styles transition. Regardless, if you have any tips, I’m all ears!

Thank you for reading!

  1. Remember Sisyphus? You know the story of the rock of ages? They say he’s self-aggrandizing. Don’t be self depreciating by letting that roll back over you. You have talent. Just write. Let others be critical.. Did I just say that? Smile anyways!

    • Camus was a smart man; but Absurdism teaches us little about valuing expectations. I have to be critical at-vanguard, I must be the biggest menace to my own work. Thats how Caliath works, thats why it’s a land of ineptitude.
      But your compliment is still very-sweet indeed, and akin to how Camus asks you to see Sisyphus content, even if accursed, I ask that you see the beauty of my unrolled levity.
      Thank you Michael, you’re an awesome duderoni.

    • Ah!, I hope it gets better as the Cantos increase; I’m still not conveying everything in it’s best iteration. But I’m very glad it pleases you!, as I don’t paint you as easily pleasable.
      Thank you Aaron, as always, I heavily respect your input.
