Description

Outcast is an eclectic mix of poetry which, in the space of 50 haunting poems, touches nearly every aspect of modern life. Career, war, love, friendship, family, education, consciousness are all laid bare in a simple poetic style, revealing the characters' lives through their senses, perceptions, and emotions. All the poems are written in the first person with just a sprinkling of metaphor. Though the dystopian struggles of 21st century humanity are plain to see, the author refrains from preaching solutions to these struggles, preferring instead to let the reader judge for himself how to react to these aspects of modern life. Outcast presents the reader with a rare opportunity to pause and reflect on where humanity is headed-pell-mell toward a future of unthinkable change and often at odds with the American ideal.show more
