Please join me on this quest through dark passages -- yet there are rays of hope throughout as we seek paradise. This book contains a range of poetic and prosaic writing styles in one compilation that is thick with liminalism and imagery.

The book is for the connoisseur of fine poetry. It has Sir Walter Scott's epic sweep, Arthur Schopenhauer's Wille zum Leben, and Shelley's fluidity of movement, among other qualities, all distilled with Dennis Thomas' characteristic aplomb.
by George Gordon Byron - Milner and Sowerby
Byron's masterpiece tells of the adventures of Don Juan. Written in ottava rima stanza form, it blends drama with humor, outrageous satire of his contemporaries, and mockery of Western societies, with England coming under particular attack.
