The Resurrection Waltz based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
R.M. Engelhardt is an underground writer whose poetry and writing has been widely published in many online magazines as well as in print magazines over the last 20 years or so. He is the author of several books such as "The Last Cigarette, The Collected Poems Of R.M. Engelhardt" and many others and in style is comparable to such writers as Nick Tosches, Charles Bukowski, Pessoa and even a bit of the mystic and Rimbaud are thrown in as well. What speaks to you in his poems is the crafting of the ordinary and its beauty as well as the gritty, daily reality of life and living in the 21st century. Engelhardt's poems in this book, "The Resurrection Waltz" Engelhardt also speaks about the questions and the relevancy of poetry and the place of the poet in a technology driven future age where it seems that the poem and poetry has been forgotten and or has been left for dead (Saint Poem). There is even a piece in here where the poet turns to the late musician Warren Zevon and a bottle of scotch for answers to some of life's more romantic questions. Overall? i enjoyed this book quite a bit and am glad I bought it.
