Item description for Bittersweet Wine by Charles E. Miller...

In a time of national stress, of what value is poetry? Why poetry when we have the expository media to inform and entertain? Because information is not enough to satisfy the human soul, heal pain or quench the fires of fear and hate. Poetry has always been a humanizing influence in Western civilization, and thus cousin to religion in that regard. Poetry-and fiction-are the continuation of a prehistoric tradition of Man's oral tradition of storytelling. A great poem-or even a good one-compresses the experience of the human heart, with its full panoply of emotions, into a few lines. A good poem affirms life and the human spirit in addition to offering the writer's vision. Thus is derived poetry's power Poetry reveals what narrative often misses-the angst of feeling and the vision which accompanies it. In his duress the poet will often, unknowingly, give voice to deeper emotion. Into a poem the master will inject thoughts, emotions, dreams, fears, rebellions, pleasures-what others either could not or were reluctant to reveal. In so doing, he provides a vehicle for acknowledging social taboo, such as that against revealing our hurts. The wounded person is often blind to his own pain. A poem can open the wound, lance the boil, cleanse the poison of pain, thus, in a small way, offering redemption. It is my hope that a handful of these poems will fulfill the need to remember and to heal, as well as elicit images and give pleasure.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bittersweet Wine?

Free-verse short poems embracing Western civilization  Jan 5, 2003
Bittersweet Wine is an extensive compilation of Charles E. Miller's original, free-verse short poems embracing Western civilization and the togetherness and ideals it arises from and stands for. Influences from the Old West seeps through at times, yet the central themes of human life and virtues transcend all time and any setting. Bittersweet Wine is a welcome and much appreciated contribution to any personal or academic poetry collection or reading list. "Glorious was her captain and brave to her heart/Whose saber brightly flashed like his lingering smile./Fallen among those who never again rose,/Immortal - she still loves him, beyond life's breath."
