Siena Press presents the inaugural release from its Legacy Poetry Series, the debut collection of poetry from author, Juan-Paolo Perre. A work of resounding depth and power. "One can clearly see Mr. Perre’s ancestral bloodline: from Pablo Neruda to Hart Crane, Walt Whitman to Larry Levis and Philip Levine. Each poem clamours with a sure and pervasive vision."
The Legacy Poetry Series is designed to highlight significant contributions to poetry whether it be a first collection or an established writer; the sole criteria being works of substantial promise and enduring quality.
The collection will be available shortly in paperback and on electronic media.
Born in Siena, Italy, Mr. Perre emigrated to London, UK and then to the US (New York City). A noted polymath, he is not only a talented writer but as well an experienced classical concert violinist and pianist as well as a celebrated actor (under the nom d'artiste Adam Alexi-Malle).
""Whitman-esque in its depth of feeling - an auspicious first taste of a promising visionary poet."
We are proud to present "A Confederacy of Joy".
