Eclectia: vol. 1 is the first collection of poetry written by Pennsylvania author and poet J.P. Goss. It was written over the course of almost two years. The collection, as a whole, reflects the inner chaos of the adolescent and no definite or constant theme throughout, but this: the Eclectic. Subjects range from loss in love and home to philosophical musings to, ultimately, the triumph over one's inner chaos. It is that victory that one rebuilds the destroyed into the most beautiful object imaginable: Eclectia. The challenge that Goss presents to the reader through his poetry is to replace grief with strength and rubble with structure and make one's inner world a better place. Truly, one will "never [see] storms quite the same."
