The Parliament of Poets: An Epic Poem
In 1977, FREDERICK GLAYSHER took a theatre course in the Interpretative Reading of Poetry, learning that the Greek rhapsodes would travel throughout ancient Greece reciting Homer. Before long the idea of writing an epic poem became compelling and the dream that one day he might also revive the art of the rhapsode.
Thirty years in the making, The Parliament of Poets: An Epic Poem takes place partly on the moon, at the Apollo 11 landing site, the Sea of Tranquility, an epic tale and shaman-like chant, the story of humanity from Blombos Cave to the dark side of the moon.
Glaysher has performed more than twenty-five times from his epic poem in Metro Detroit, universities, cafes, UU churches, the Theosophical Society, Albany and Buffalo New York, Austin International Poetry Festival, and elsewhere. In California, last year, he read at Tuesdays at North Beach Library, Cafe International, Floreys Books, and at the Himalayan.
