The Scroll of the Violin

By Jim Bennett

Poetry | Paperback, eBook


Belief, and unbelief. Religion and philosophy. Not told in argument, but each given as an experience from a particular viewpoint. Mortality as a guiding concern of life is presented seriously, and sometimes humourously as well. What would a corpse make of the situation? Wake Speech gives one answer. What does it mean for a creature to be alive? Dissection probes this. Does your faith ever waver? You may see yourself in this book; does your unbelief ever shiver just a trace? You'll find other experiences to compare with your own. When you have time and patience, turn to the title poem. Here a form of unbelief becomes a deep belief after all.



Have a picnic wherein the future of the relationship is in doubt. Wonder about the evolution of tadpole to frog, and the hoped-for human to angel. Watch a lovely woman get a critical diagnosis. Go for a walk, certain that God does not exist ... and wonder. Have a troubled soul look on you as a saviour. Get discouraged loading a container of food for the poor in an African country. Mix in another fifty experiences or so, and you are qualified to write these poems. This author is not an English Lit. major. Yet, this author has, on request, taught a one-class collage lecture, on using poetic techiniqes in prose writing, nine times. He writes for you.
