Rekèy Ekstra Fatal by Schiller Marcelin
(Miami, FL) July 1, 2015 -- Schiller Marcelin, the parolier and devoted poet, has completed his new book Rekèy Ekstra Fatal: a gripping and potent book of poetry that details the author’s vivid life experiences in a unique rhythmical voice. Schiller Marcelin is both enlightening and powerfully heartfelt without descending into nostalgia or sentimentality; this collection of poetry delves into the ideas of identity, ethnography, love, hope and personal introspection. This collection is available in trade paperback and audiobook CD formats.
Published by U.S.-based Édition Delince, Schiller Marcelin’s heartfelt work encompasses a wide variety of poems that simultaneously take the reader on a journey into the life of the author and the rapidly changing cultural landscapes of Haitian culture over the past 20 years.
Overflowing with extremely lush, sometimes languid Kreyòl (Haitian Creole), here is a panoramic collection of poems that range from the lyrical to the near-polemic. With the publication of his first book, Rekèy Ekstra Fatal, Schiller unveils a lush, rhythmical voice that blends elements of spoken word and post Spiralist poetry. His work employs poetic lines to illustrate observations of both collective and personal experiences. This anthology of poetic (literary) light illuminates the changes faced the individual within the broader Haitian Culture and in so doing maps changes in trajectory, aspiration and evolution within a near-personified “Haitian body cultural”. Schiller’s commanding voice addresses intensely personal and fiercely cultural issues from Haiti’s past and present succeeding in transcendence.
Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase Rekèy Ekstra Fatal at fine bookstores worldwide, or online at the Amazon.com, KOBO/Rakuten, Barnes and Noble, La Feltrinelli (Milan, Italy), and Alibis (EU).
