About James Fitzpatrick

James Fitzpatrick is an Irish writer and documentarian who writes using ‘Triplicism’. He has been writing for many years mainly working in Film Production, Sport and Teaching.

From study and learning from historical writers, he created two new formats ‘Triplicism’ being one. In this you take a central character, from which you storyboard an incident or life. You use an invented or historical event, before infusing an undertone or emotion. Each poem should have three layers i.e. Modernism V Conceptualism, Poverty V Wealth, Moral Corruption V Natural Aggression and the storyline is nearly always accompanied by notes

Review by: Emily Lava on Jan. 04, 2012 :
Some of it reads like obituary to the fallen construction industry, very good

Catching the paradoxical
Statements of unlucky builders,
And listening to the premonition stories
On the smell of ice.

Review by: Virginia Vento on Jan. 01, 2012 :
I fast read and need to focus a lot more, but I love knowing what the boat was like, I love the discription in the poem of the News they had

'The room is dashed with card players
Photographers and Journalists,
All dissecting ‘The Atlantic News’,
Scribed daily to administer,
A dose of sport, social
And Industrial Truths'

Review by: Samuel Waters on Dec. 25, 2011 :
I will write a full and succinct review in the New Year but I must say the first few reads have impressed me, and although the poem, in it's structure does not have an obvious chance to 'achieve a theoretical impossibility' in the fact it is an event which happened, it does give us something new in it's form, and in ways, structure.

It's hard to fault the historical elements without first researching the actual sinking of the Titanic, but if it fits, timeline and action wise, plus harbouring the dark undertone of Shakespeare's 'Moral Corruption' in Hamlet, then like it's central character, it could be a future triumph hidden waiting to be discovered. I'll give it five stars for now, but let me sleuth properly before nailing any colours to the mast.
