Beyond the Blockade : Seeking Beauty in Melancholy, Paperback / softback Book

Beyond the Blockade : Seeking Beauty in Melancholy Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Michael Barr Waltz

Paperback / softback


A neoteric collection of poetry and prose about growth exploring the dualities of identity, desire, sexuality, and manifestations of the ego. Structured as a poetic symphony, the book further invokes passionate musings of pain and time.

Featuring complementary ink illustrations from up-and-coming artist Michael Barr Waltz, the book dissects provocative and existential motifs of life as seen and experienced through the eyes and body of a young lover. The collection is divided into five distinct movements symbolizing different periods of growth and reflection - Overture, Clavier Sonata, Scarlet Suite, Pathetique Lamentoso, Coda - that are used to underscore and amplify a visceral narrative.
