Description

Raymond Marcus was born in 1923, at the outset of monstrous cataclysms-the Great Depression and World War Two. Now, at age eighty-five he confronts, as witness and unwilling participant, another disaster of cosmic proportions in the making. His collection of poetry is "an attempt to bridge the psychic gap" between his past, "when I fiddled with crystal radio circuits- but people seemed warmer," and today, "when people are as virtual as the virtual reality they seem to cherish; strange yet familiar." Between Centuries is the poet's prayerful hope that people today will live to see a more compassionate and just world.show more
