Item description for About God, About Angels, About Poetry: A Theologico, Poetico Treatise by V. Ulea...

With Chaucerian wit, these poems and essays combine with whimsical art to tackle a Miltonic quandary. la V. Ulea (aka Vera Zubarev), God creates the angels because of loneliness. But the trouble is that these angels see everything in black and white, Satan and Gabriel. So . . . God tries again, with Adam---who offers improvement, for the poor fellow does have some amusing faults. But what is with all this classifying? Neither Aristotle nor computers are around yet. So, why---daily---does Adam feel compelled to name everything? Pondering this, God gives a glance to Adam's rib as he sleeps and . . . well, at least half the readers will know exactly what God does and why. And those who don't, will, after seeing how Ulea and Frankel have combined Eve's foremost talents, Chaos and Creativity, to offer us a most pleasant excursus.

Reviews - What do customers think about About God, About Angels, About Poetry: A Theologico, Poetico Treatise?

Explores deep subject matter in an entertaining way  Jan 22, 2007
This is a great book of poetry. Its major themes are the conception of God as a developing entity and the creator-creation relationship between God and man. Somehow, the author manages to cover this complicated and deep subject matter in a fascinating and witty way. A pleasure to read.
Paint an engaging fable about God's creations  Oct 19, 2003
About Angels, About God, About Poetry brings together wry poems and an prose piece by V. Ulea (along with whimsical black-and-white art by Irene Frenkel) paint an engaging fable about God's creations. He crafts angels to soothe His loneliness, then Adam because the angels can only comprehend in black-and-white terms, then Eve for her unique talents. About Angels, About God, About Poetry offers an eyebrow-raising reinterpretation of the story of Creation, written with humor and heart. Eden As God's Lab: Eden was a pragmatic stage in God's Creation./God felt like privatizing a land/To resolve some very practical questions./Eden was built as God's private lab. // In Eden all creatures had their determined functions./There was no one who'd simply beautify that spot./Even Eve was endowed with concrete and limited options./But she was a big miscalculation of God's.
Rare poetry achievement  Jul 1, 2003
I„Sd like to share just a few words about fresh edition of „cAngels¡K„c. It is a shear pleasure ( the other day I get hardbound version of this book ) to hold, to caress, to touch, to look, to turn pages of this little art wonder. It is obvious that people who produced it are not simply highly skilled pro, but also demonstrated that it is a labor of understanding and love for them. Over my life spin I shuffled through many book productions but it seems to me that this one stands out with its perfect design, typesetting, interface of text and drawings and all other contributing features.
It cannot escape any intelligent person no matter how ill equipped he(she) is in the skill of reading how much intuition, talent, sophistication, elegance, charm delivered through the entire body of those rhymed lines, how much intellectual power possesses author of these thoughts who overcome immense hurdles in order to excavate and bring to reader in such an eloquent form all flayers of subject that occupied her mind.
Introduction by H-J Gerigk is a very prominent recognition of author's achievements in its entirety and speaks from the prospective of the circle of intellectuals where author is clearly belongs. Yes, I believe that there is significant strata of heavy weight learned thinkers (sometimes they are slanged as eggheads ) who are starving to get this kind of intellectual food on a table, the only one that they can recognize and consume. In that sense this book of philosophical poetry catapulted huge potent rocket into that camp and I will not be surprised if these poetical tractates will become milestone in their circles. Lets wait and see.

My congratulations to the poet,
Mark Averbukh
