Throughout history poets have been drawn to write about insects, and entomologists have been drawn to try their hand at poetry. The concentrated industry of the ant and the delicate beauty of the butterfly, the rituals of the death watch beetle and the ethereal vision of glow worms at dusk, have all been captured in verse. John Tennent spent his childhood with a jam jar and an insatiable curiosity about insects. More than half a century later he is a global authority on butterflies and a dedicated reader of poetry. He has travelled, for his entomological research, to the world's wildest and most uninhabited places, collecting, in the depths of a tropical forest or on the shore of an unpeopled island, myriad experiences and life forms as rare as they are peculiar, and some of them decidedly dangerous. In the pages of this anthology he brings together classic poets such as Virgil and Byron and modern writers such as Pam Ayres, Spike Milligan and Peter Redgrove, alongside a wealth of other poets and amateur poets from different continents, to explore the mysterious world of the insect through poetry. As fascinating as the poems themselves are John Tennent's personal anecdotes of confrontations with legions of hungry cockroaches, his encounters with remote tribespeople, and the excitement of discovering a previously unknown species of insect. Humorous, evocative and informative, The Poetry Bug is a celebration of every type of insect, from caterpillars to bedbugs.

Baron Wormser brings to life the immense force poetry can have in people's lives. In stories funny, tender, sad, and edgy, the narrators register how poetry has changed how they see themselves, how they live, and what they care about. As it bends genres by adapting aspects of fiction, biography, essay and monologue, The Poetry Life shows how poetry can be lightning in the soul. "Baron Wormser has pulled off a miraculous feat--he has written a collection of stories that reveals the absolute necessity of poetry in our lives. His prose style is riveting, and his characters are as diverse as a phone book. Each voice conjures up a passionate portrait of inner life, telling us--through episodes both comic and tragic--that the world of the deceased poet remains eternally relevant to our own." --Clint McCown, author of The Weatherman: A Novel "'Poetry,' Baron Wormser writes, 'is about generosity.' So too are these ten stories you hold in your hands. They are about generosity. And mystery. And loneliness. And life. They are about how poetry helps us 'stay in our skins.' You will fall in love with these stories and with the ten poets who appear in them. What Baron Wormser says about William Carlos Williams, I say about him here, 'He nailed it.'" --Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle: A Novel "A book of stories not about poets but driven by the presence of poetry and the shadows of poets: madness undoubtedly. But the best kind of madness! With this book, Baron Wormser invites us to reconsider the connection between poetry and our lives, to remember that we really do live hungry for inner vision, for small insights that can save us from the slag heap of goofdom and pointlessness. It's a wonderful book. It's the kind of stuff that makes you want to stay in the world. " --Tim Seibles, author of Buffalo Head Solos

Welcome to the thoughts of a poet Duane ‘The Poetic Mind’ Abbott. The poems that you will read I hope will embrace you and will give you an insight to my world, life and thoughts told through my pen. I am a lover of words and how they are moved around, strung together and made into pure beauty. Listening to music in my early years, I can remember as I still do today loving the words and not just the melodies that can make a beautiful song come alive. The first time I can recall writing what I grew to know as poetry was just a few lines in a Christmas card to my then girlfriend at the time. Ever since then I caught this poetry bug which I believe is a God given talent to just write my emotions on any topic that can hit me at any given moment in time. These poems are just some of those emotions over the years that have now graced the pages of my very first book, which I hope to be the start of many. The book that you will read is firstly dedicated to my son named Poetry whose picture graces the front cover. He has inspired me to bring to life thoughts and feelings penned before his birth and after to an audience, which I hope will firstly appreciate my words and connect with the many poems. The Poetic Mind is just that, full of love poems, everyday thoughts, reality and inspirational poems. I promise The Poetic Mind will have you captivated and even may bring that tear to your eye. Please open the first page and may you enjoy a journey into my thoughts!
