Red Wolf Press Australia: Our First two anthologies

What better way to end the busy Silly seasons, and see 2013 to its inevitable end then by coming down to the Brunswick Hotel, having a drink, buying a book, reading a poem, singing a song, you can do it all on Monday 30th of December, 2013...

Red Wolf Press Australia, Lulu,the Brunswick Hotel and Passionate Tongues proudly brings to you, two new poetry collections by James WF Roberts, Ten Poems and The Preludes. Red Wolf Press Australia is a new experimental and dark prose/verse publisher. These first two publications are the foundation stones of what will hopefully become part of the Melbourne and Australia literary scenes.

 So what are the books about? Ten Poems, is an experimental collection of ten poems written in a variety of different voices, textures and tones; ranging from a bank heist gone wrong, the miracle of birth in the tragedy and banality of a war zone, drug addiction, the trials and tribulations of love and relationships, to Indigenous Australian Land rights and spirituality.

The Preludes, by James WF Roberts, is a work of more serious literary and artistic pursuits. The Preludes are series of 50 individual pieces that are connected by narrative, structure and ideas. A philosophical work meditating on what it is to be an artist living in the world today, how do we cope with the loss of a loved one, the loss of the soul, the mechanical nature of society, does God exist? Is love real or just a chemical in-balance. Preludes is a cross-genre work, based on the traditions of TS Eliot’s Four Quartets, the Psalms of the Bible, Classical mythology and modern contemporary pop-culture—the poet is going on a journey in this collection, he is trying to find meaning in homogenized, digitized, corporatized world. Will he find what he is looking for?
