In This Book and Other Poems

DWM Press is pleased to announce the serial publication of the collected poems of Robert Coleman Williams, beginning with In This Book and Other Poems.

Robert Williams, poet and noted scholar of both Dylan Thomas and R. S. Thomas, is perhaps best known for his A Concordance to the Collected Poems of Dylan Thomas. 

Drawing upon his Welsh heritage and a lifetime of work across the globe, the poems of Robert Williams reflect both his personal journey and the Celtic literary traditions of his forebears. Many of the newer poems are triadic in form, and those readers familiar with the Welsh and Irish languages will be pleased to see a robust usage in these contemporary verses.

"All my years as a scholar and then a publisher, all I did was to occasionally circulate small gatherings of poems by hand. Now is the time to have the poems published for a wider audience." — Robert Williams

Genre: Poetry

In This Book and Other Poems

In This Book and Other Poems, by Robert Coleman Williams, is available in a DWM Press deluxe edition.

Parable of the Rich Man

Parable of the Rich Man, by Kirk Beasley, is a work of literary fiction that recounts the fantastic adventure of Brooks Patterson,  plutocrat and native of the cozy suburb of Excess, USA.

Brooks has struggled to maintain the family’s international business after the recent death of his father. The Old Fox, as he was known to friend and foe, was a publicity hound, bon vivant, and merchant of death. In his absence, Brooks discovers that while business booms worldwide, his own failing health and deteriorating sanity require a stopover in London in order to recover. But recovery remains elusive as London transforms into a liminal stage, where a kerb on The Strand might be the boundary between one world and another.

And Brooks sets out on that journey, a twenty-first-century man stepping into an ancient Celtic Wonder Tale where nothing is what it seems, where time and place are ambiguous at best, and so little is to be trusted. So there we find our hero, forced to choose between the certainty of despair and the uncertainty of life in the contemporary world. 

Perceptive readers have noted echoes of Chesterton and Kafka while the author signals us with glimpses of the prior art of C. S. Lewis, Walker Percy, and Thomas Mann.
