A Romantic's Passion: The Tenth Muse by Valentino

Romantic Poet Enamors Critics, Readers

Classic, au courant collection carves a new niche for itself in the poetry world

GLENDALE, N.Y. – Poems, letters, extended verse and photos combine to reveal intricate, elaborate imagery that completely embodies the spirit of love and devotion in heralded poet Valentinno’s critically and commercially acclaimed collection, A Romantic's Passion: The Tenth Muse.

“Phenomenal.” “Intriguing.” “Enthralling.” These are some of the things reviewers and readers have been compelled to say after being introduced to Valentinno’s work. Divided into five books (Romance, Letters, Love, Desire, Passion) and interspersed with journal entries, photos and other memorabilia, over 130 poems in A Romantic’s Passion chronicle the poet’s, torrid love affair with his muse.

Eschewing the constraints of metered rhyme and breaking free from outside influence, A Romantic’s Passion is striking in its genuine, provocative tone. Expertly effortless, Valentinno’s poems take their subject matter, and in turn the reader, to new levels of consciousness. Consider the fluidity and depth found in “The Blood of Life”, featured here in excerpt:

I shall come for hire before her like a/celestial dove, perched upon the branches of heaven./To hold her close in love’s sweet/nest. I among her am the immortal pilot of/the sun./Where her eyes are the passageway of/steady rays filtered through the windows of/my impassioned soul. Where every fallen/angel who only bares one wing she takes up/in arms and lifts them toward the sky./Her loveliness is but the beginning where/the beginning has no end and her loveliness/is perfection. She is of infinite providence,/God sent in an image of a mortal woman./But yet in the form of a venerable spirit.

Discover what the Examiner is saying: “This book is nothing less than genius! I see the wonderful ethereal quality harkening to the romantic era. Valentinno’s Work reminds me of Byron with a bit of the idealism of Keats.”

KILL 'EM IN BRAZIL (Devil Barnett Detective Series Book 6)

When I created Devil Barnett back in the mid 80’s the idea of a bad-assed African American ex-CIA hitman turned private detective appealed to me. Now I could use my hard boiled, world-weary cynical detective to right some wrongs as well as express my views about what I saw as ingrained social injustices and inequalities. I could now slate big business criminality and indifference along with the widespread political corruption and complicity that I believed had become a part of the hidden malignant underbelly of the American culture machine. The same machine that I felt was driving its citizenry towards a strange kind of collective psychosis.
Now some thirty years later when I read that there were 372 mass killings in the US during the past year, I am horrified and astounded to realize that even my ardent and youthful cynicism has been eclipsed by a reality more sinister and brutal than I had imagined; making me realize that Devil Barnett has a lot more work to do.
