Delinquency begins with music. To confide therein for comprehension or advancement or proficiency degrades Americans. Not liking arduous delectations of practice or scholarship, more irresolute the people grow, forsaking hours daily to abide with music. MAKING AN END OF MUSIC in 1820 couplets unfolds the enormities of this delinquent choice. "Certainly the oddest if most distinctive book of verse I've seen since Hector was a pup. The depth of your hatred for Keynesian economics, that could sustain you through 1564 tightly wrought couplets, is dumbfounding." X J Kennedy on Shakespeare Versus Keynes

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.
