Poetry Against Terror

"I started this editorial project after the murdering of so many innocents in Paris, on November 13, 2015, as a tribute to them and to the countless other victims of terror, worldwide. I started the project, but it is a collective book: a compilation of poems written by 68 poets from 43 different countries, worldwide, who are against any kind of 'terror'." (Fabrizio Frosini) More

In Frosini's Poetry:
1. The Truth is Affirmed ; 2. Beauty is Conveyed ; 3. The Personal becomes the Universal.
One of the key terms in contemporary poetry is 'POETRY OF WITNESS'. "Florence, A Walk With A View" is an excellent example of this type of poem. It exchanges the anger we experienced in the preceding poem with melancholy, but this is a haunted and desperate melancholy, not at all like the word's root meaning of sweet sorrow. Yet, in Fabrizio Frosini's poem, the city charms the visitor with its natural beauty - "the silky lights of the / Sunset" - and artistic ambiance - "the intimate warmth of nostalgia that makes / Your heart melt at the sight around".
In the finest poetry, beauty is conveyed in all of it sensuous and spiritual glory. The title "Water Music" refers to one of Handel's most popular works, a masterpiece of baroque melody, rhythm and harmony. The poem, however, is not about this music.. here is a shining element of the beauty this poem conveys - "I was in my room, staring at the clear sky through the window. The moon, so pale and magical, drawing my imagination to her. In my ears Handel's music was playing softly." - There is the beauty of VITA NOVA, in this Frosini's poem: Dante's idealization of Beatrice with its artistic and moral benefits experienced by a contemporary couple. And finally the beauty of sublimation, when an otherwise sensuous experience must be transferred to the plane of the Imagination. Other Frosini's poem, like "Nocturnal Snowing", are Poems of Memory, that reveal the persistence of an experience of mutual attraction in the poet's life over many decades. There, a young woman, who is forever young and lovely in the poet's mind, becomes a touchstone of emotional value. But not all good experiences are given a future by the hand of fate. And so Frosini's poetry also explores the emotional consequences of the loss of such a promising moment... The prevailing reaction in reader after reader is that Frosini's verses relate to their emotional lives. In other words, Fabrizio Frosini's personal experience reflects their personal experience, and thus the Personal becomes the Universal...

About the Series: Poetry of Witness
Some readers might think that Poetry should be the triumph of "grace and lightness", and that violence should be left to prose. Yet, Poetry is a manifestation of Life, as well as any other human expression. Indeed, Human Society needs such kind of Poetry, and we believe that this is a task that all of us, as poets, have a moral obligation to pursue, because we can't accept to live in a world where freedom and democracy are at risk, extreme poverty is widespread, violence, discrimination and sheer inequality is the norm. At the bottom, it is all a matter of sin and greed.. «Because the world has no more miracles to show —And it represents / The most painful betrayal.» (F. Frosini)
