View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Disparities are just deserts, between The good and bad in competition seen. 1844 maxims of rhythmic justice and assertive rhyme, carried forward in the cause of human dissimilarity upon competitive pretensions for rewards, merciless poetry manifest. Successful emulation in enterprise these unemasculated couplets may inspire. Book One enlarges on justice, maintaining that disparities justly may flourish where no monopolistic state or centralized monotony prevents them. In Book Two, the undigested individual is regarded as the likeliest exemplar of fulfilled attainments. At large egalitarian larceny Leaves Shakespeare no distinguished property.

About the Author:

It is the author's ambition to write the best philosophical epigrams in world literature. From comparisons with Nietzsche, Shakespeare, Eric Hoffer, and Alexander Pope he'd never shrink. Unlike Nietzsche and Shakespeare, he denies that ambitious folk would be happier under a Napoleon or Caesar than as citizens in a republic of individuals. He swings with the same fist that Shakespeare swung Who gave his Tybalt a pugnacious tongue. Pages of his translation of Homer's Iliad have appeared in The International Poetry Review, Inverted a-horn, The Steelhead Special, Mobius, Office Number One, Hrafnho (Wales), Headland (England), Buckle, Troglodyte (Wales), Poet Magazine, and Sonnetto Poesia is in a series of ten issues publishing the whole first book of Light's Iliad.
