Description - A Crucible of Innocence by Roger W Forsythe
The James Conrad Scott Chronicles: Volume One Welcome to the Troubadour Poets Cafe and Bistro, where a sad, lonely boy (James Conrad Scott) plays writer with the "Imaginary Friends" who accept him as he is: Jack Kerouac, Rupert Brooke, and the Literary Immortals! Now 30, Conrad confronts A Crucible of Innocence in the boxing match exorcism of his toughest trial. As always, his best friend (John Keats) is there to comfort and inspire. Facing spiritual, financial and health crises, Conrad imagines himself surviving the Titanic, pioneering the American Eden, and fighting the Civil War Armageddon. May Angels walk among us? May reincarnation be possible? May the loss of Innocence be prevented? Composed in the style of New Beat Romanticism, Roger W. Forsythe's debut "Poetic Novel" answers "Yes!" to all three. Through the Myth of Being, a Theory of Aural Compassion, Positive Capability and "P=bs2" (Poetry=body/soul2), the fiction of Conrad's world may offer clues into the reality of our own.
