Series

Our Chains, Our Dreams
What if you could pull a chain and your dreams would come trailing out on the page in front of you—In poetry? In "Our Chains, Our Dreams" series, by Poets Unite Worldwide, this is just what happens. Explore your dreams, your nightmares, your fears, your anger, and your love. Along the way, you’ll meet muses, a tortured Sisyphus, a lonely man, and have dinner with Augustine by candle light—you might even learn how to fall in love again.. (P. Smith Sinicrope)
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)

This is a tale told by many poetic voices: a multifaceted story that unfolds through the poems. Along its paths, different places and characters, but all of them speak of us: if we look carefully, we can recognize ourselves in the distorted images reflected in a series of animate multiform mirrors. Yet, this is not a sophisticated game of mirrors. This is LIFE: from our past to our next future...

This "WORLD" is the arena of duties and fidelities, work and play, passions and pursuits, experience and memory, love and desire, and a host of other parallels which populate the poems we read and write. A poet can simply disappear into this World with its lures, traps, seductions, gambling, used car dealerships and department stores. “Oh Mondo, ti fai sdrucciolevole”, si lamenta Coriolano...

Every day we come across stories about discrimination and even atrocities committed against women. Some of such injustices are very overt, like physical and sexual abuse; others are more 'subtle', but still unacceptable. At the root of this prejudice is a culture that belittles and subjugate women through various "norms" born out of obsolete ideals, moralities, and even the "Law of the Land"...

I have always thought that a poem does not have 'one' meaning. It can (and has to) have many: one for each and every reader. If it’s so, what could be the meaning of the following verses? “/ Your eyes –Ethereal / Like butterfly wings./” Or : “Imagine how / Long was the night / And it broke into a day / Loaded with shadows — ../” ~*~ “/ I tuoi occhi —Evanescenti / Come ali di farfalla./” ...

Price: $3.50 USD. Words: 9,400. Language: Italian. Published: May 29, 2017 by Fabrizio Frosini. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Visionary & metaphysical
Benché parte delle poesie di Fabrizio Frosini siano state scritte in un periodo di grandi contrapposizioni ideologiche (ovvero negli anni '70 e '80 del novecento), non possiamo definirle 'politiche'. La sua è infatti una poetica della memoria, i cui temi essenziali riguardano il senso della vita e il destino dell'Uomo, visto come individuo —in tutta la sua fragilità, ma anche (inutile) grandezza..
Echi e Rompicapi
Price: $3.50 USD. Words: 6,820. Language: Italian. Published: May 29, 2017 by Fabrizio Frosini. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » European poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
Anche questo nuovo libro di poesie di Fabrizio Frosini, come il resto della sua produzione poetica, ci sollecita a meditare, a riflettere sul senso dell'esistere: ed è questo il ruolo della vera Poesia —farci meditare sulla vita, su noi stessi. Indubbiamente, un libro da non perdere. Un consiglio: tenetelo sul comodino, così da leggerlo in tutta calma.

A dialogue with memories of the past, thoughts and dreams of the present, is a constant, and the deliberated ambiguity of Frosini's poetic texts * Συχνά ένας διάλογος με μνήμες του παρελθόντος, σκέψεις και όνειρα του παρόντος, υποσυνείδητα κι ασυνείδητα να εναλλάσσονται, ένα αμφίσημο σώμα ποιητικό πολλών εκδοχών και ερμηνειών που σαγηνεύει με την πολυδιάστατη, ανισόπεδη κατανομή των διαστάσεών του
La Chiave dei Sogni
Price: $3.50 USD. Words: 6,650. Language: Italian. Published: April 5, 2017 by Fabrizio Frosini. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
Le poesie di Fabrizio Frosini si degustano parola per parola, assaporandone le sfumature e le plurime concatenazioni. Già l’aspetto dei versi si combina col loro multiforme significato, così profondo da penetrare –attraverso l’esperienza personale del poeta– il mondo intimo del lettore. L’umanità, la memoria, la perdita, la nostalgia, la solitudine, ma anche l'amore, sono i temi dominanti...
The Double Door

There is a DOUBLE DOOR, which is an open threshold. Cross it and be welcomed to the other side. There is a double door, which admits only one traveler at a time. Your companions up to now must remain behind. The next step you take ALONE. There is a double door, it swings twice: once to immersion in the Psyche, once to release onto the World. Make your choice. There is a double door...
