Item description for Terrestrial Music by John Bradley...

The poetry in Terrestrial Music has been inspired by Pablo Neruda, Thomas McGrath, Muriel Rukeyser, and Martn Espada. In lyrics that explore issues that affect our daily lives, such as ecology, genocide, hunger, nuclear damage, and violence, John Bradley not only celebrates the beauty of earth and the redeeming power of nature, but also confronts social injustice and fully explores the impact of the industrial uses of radium with detailed historical anecdotes and documentation. These poems identify one common source of strength: The earth is part of our identity, our body, and our soul.

Reviews - What do customers think about Terrestrial Music?

Timely and Timeless  Apr 1, 2007
This is a timely, and timeless, book that lyrically explores the wonders of earth and redemptive power of nature as they relate to our daily lives. Bradley writes of issues such as genocide, hunger, nuclear threats, and violence and confronts social injustice in its myriad forms. Through it all he manages to bring the reader closer to the earth which he argues is an indispensable part of our body, soul, and identity. He is at heart an optimist, with humility, as evidenced by this poem: "With each line I write, I pull the world back a little/from the edge...No wonder I sit and stare out the window."This is a worth while effort at an amazingly reasonable price and another reason independent presses are an American treasure.
A collection of poems inspired by Pablo Neruda, Thomas McGrath, Muriel Rukeyeser, and Martin Espada  Jan 4, 2007
Prize-winning poet John Bradley presents Terrestrial Music, a collection of poems inspired by Pablo Neruda, Thomas McGrath, Muriel Rukeyeser, and Martin Espada. The haunting stanzas, which range from free-verse to narration approaching stream-of-consciousness, deals with the severities of social injustice, mankind's brutal impact on nature, and the power of the earth as part of the human identity - if only humankind can learn to recognize this and change its destructive ways before all is lost. "Terrestrial Music/2": I want to sleep / until we float / out of our skins / catch / on the maple's / wet leaves / dripping / onto the sleepless earth.
