Dead & Undead Poems Book

Sorry, but this item has been discontinued and is no longer available!

Just in time for Halloween: a one-of-a-kind hardcover collection of poems from ancient times to the present about ghosts, zombies, and vampires. This selection of poems from across the ages brings to life a staggering array of zombies, ghosts, vampires, and devils. Our culture's current obsession with zombies and vampires is only the latest form of a fascination with crossing the boundary between the living and the dead that has haunted humans since we first began writing. The poetic evidence gathered here ranges from ancient Egyptian inscriptions, to the Mesopotamian epic Gilgamesh, and the Greek bard Homer to Shakespeare, Milton, Keats, Emily Dickinson and Edgar Allan Poe. Here too are terrifying apparitions from a host of more recent poets - from T. S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath, H. P. Lovecraft, Mick Jagger, Shel Silverstein and more! The result is a delightfully entertaining volume of spine-tingling poems for fans of horror and poetry alike.
