Kronos9 traces a sublime personal topography of chaos.
Linguistic juxtaposition, venerable stylistic devices laid asunder, Tweets, file lists and stream of consciousness and word play are all deconstructed by Kronos9. These are the elements codified within this new collection of experimental poetry titled: CODE POET. This collection immediately echoes the monumental changes in the mechanisms which we use to communicate in the 21st century. Kronos9, embraces the ever more entropic linguistic universe in which very modality is fighting for recognition and supremacy.
Nowhere is this truer than online where Tweets, battle pokes, battling blogs and the unending barrage of APPs carpet bombing our most intimate mobile device - our minds. Are we more alert because we are constantly bombarded with alerts? Do these communications modalities clarify, confuse or occlude context? This are the questions posited by CODE POET.

Toussaint L’Ouverture explored in English, French and Kreyòl Ayisyen.
The 1861, Wendell Phillips American Lyceum oration on the life and contributions to liberty made by Toussaint L'Overture. This book contains original 19th century English, period French and a modern Haitian Kreyòl translation. Universally revered as a political, military and social engineering luminary of the late 18th and early 19th century, Toussaint L'Ouverture is reexamined here not in legendary terms but in terms of his championing of human dignity for all. Phillips illustrates Toussaint’s best qualities through the colloquial English of a 19th Century abolitionist.
THAR SHE BLOWS!
Moby Dick by Herman Melville has been sighted.
The American literary giant Moby Dick is now available as part of our Well Read Edition Collection for your reading pleasure. Acclaimed by D. H. Lawrence as "the greatest book of the sea ever written," Melville's 1851 epic Moby Dick is a rich work brimming with imagery well worth the commitment to reading. We encourage you to read Moby Dick as essentially two books fused into one volume. In this book you will feel the tension between the material world (the societal and economic realities of whaling) and the fleeting ethereal world (Ahab’s quest, observations by the crew and the nature of the sea itself).
