Across the Silence: Poems by James David Audlin by James David Audlin

Poetry is not only the most sublimely difficult but the most deeply personal of all word-arts. Close to being a spiritual autbiography, this collection mostly strives to express what lies beyond the reach of language. Previous readers have suggested similarities to Neruda, Paz, Rumi, William Blake, Rilke, and Rimbaud.

About the Author

James David Audlin is an American author living in Panama, after previously living in France.

A retired pastor, college professor, and newspaper opinion page editor, he is best known as the author of "The Circle of Life".

He has written about a dozen novels, several full-length plays, several books of stories, a book of essays, a book of poetry, and a book about his adventures in Panama.

Fluent in several languages, he has translated his novel "Rats Live on no Evil Star" into French ("Palindrome") and Spanish ("Palíndromo").

He also is a professional musician who composes, sings, and plays several instruments, though not usually at the same time.

He is married to a Panamanian lady who doesn't read English and so is blissfully ignorant about his weirdly strange books. However his adult daughter and son, who live in Vermont, USA, are aware, and are wary, when a new book comes out.
