SIENA PRESS is proud present the release of “A Confederacy of Joy”, the collection of poetry by author, Juan-Paolo Perre - the 2014 official selection of Siena Press' inaugural LEGACY POETRY SERIES PRIZE designed to highlight significant contributions to poetry whether it be by new or established poets; the sole criteria being works of substantial promise and enduring quality.
"luminous...and coursing with life."
Evoking the haunting spectre of Federico García Lorca’s duende, this auspicious debut collection hums of a humane music with themes both personal and universal. These are the poems of a soul seeking and of one searching. They are the poems of the prodigal - who journeys out eager into the world and returns having found it once again in shades bucolic, melancholic and buoyant.
"One can clearly see in these poems his ancestral bloodline: from Pablo Neruda to Hart Crane and Walt Whitman to Philip Levine. These poems clamour with a sure and pervasive vision."
