Uni-Verse: Poetry - Prints - Proofs by Visionary Humans

Front Cover
Battery Journal Publishing, 2020 - ART
Uni-Verse Poetry - Art - Proofs by Visionary Humans is devoted to the work of contemporary poets and visual artists. The unifying principle organizing the book is Relational Order Theory, which presents a context for all existing systems to be considered as a relational whole. The poets chosen for this book create an intersectional, multi-generational poesis, from David Ferry, who is 96, to Grace Macnair, 31. These unique voices, honed at very different times, all speak to us of the complexity, beauty, and struggles intrinsic to our human condition. Similarly, art through its aesthetic and existential power, helps us to better understand the meaning of our existence. In times of crisis art provides philosophical and spiritual insights, catharsis, and healing. Historically artists are the visionaries whose work possesses the power to capture the full range of human experience, from the horrors of war to the ecstasy of transcendent love. Our vision behind this collection of superlative poets and artists is to present work as both deeply enmeshed in the specificity of history and at the same time, an enduring, crucial human constant.
