LAWRENCEVILLE, GA, February 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- "Is poetry still for lovers?" asks inspirational author and first time published poet Justin C. Hart. "If you ask me," he continues, "the fiery love and passion burning within today's poets have somehow decreased to a mere billow of smoke." On Hart's behalf, he might be right. There was a time in poetic history when poetry was its own language. Considering the liberty of publication in the 21st century, there are currently more writers than ever before, but is poetry still a language of its own? Are poets still romantically passionate about their craft?
A little over 200 years ago Romanticism or the Romantic Period was alive, vibrant, and it marked it's scented aroma every where it went. This period stood out as being one of the most powerful and animated movements in literary past and present. From William Blake's rise in the late 1790s to Lord Byron's death in 1824, there were seven famous poets that blossomed during this era when poetry was at an all time high. This gang included Blake, Williams Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and a magnificent trio of buddies: Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, John Keats, and Robert Southey. These were the peak years of courageous men wooing their love interest. A courtship back then was intentionally filled with romance, respect, and chivalrous words that melted hearts like chocolate. Where do we stand today with our standard of romance? Hart challenges men and women alike by asking the question, "Is poetry still for lovers?"
Hart continues his argument by later stating that he believes there is still a remnant of "love" writers that remain, but they have misplaced their voice. "I think a lot of romantic writers have been drowned out by the lust of the world," he says. "The underground audience wants something they can relate to and can aspire after. What happened to our voice?" It's the creative rhythmic and non-rythmic flow of a seasoned artist that keeps recipients on their toes. This has been a pastime that lovers centuries ago used religiously, yet why does this have to be a pastime occurrence? What about today?
In Hart's 2013 inspirational poetry collection, he taps into a generational ocean that includes all lovers of poetry. Sticking to a more new age rhythmic word choice, the pieces of artistry range from the high and low moments of life, to the joy and pain that comes with falling in love. He concatenates his perspective with a warm touch of God's grace throughout this hundred page anthology that seals the volume closed. When asked about the three word dynamic of Life, Love and God, this was Hart's response, "These three words are the most power cluster of words I've ever known. I refuse to separate one from the other."
Life, Love & God: LLG Poetry Collection Vol. 1 (3G Publishing, Inc.) is Hart's second book. Although this is his first poetic project, he simply considers himself as a writer. And as a writing coach, he encourages other writers to do what they were created to do with a passionate heart. His goal is to see that all writers are living up to their fullest potential; especially those that write poetically. In closing Hart shared, "I am ready and willing to represent our generation. Without a doubt, yes, poetry is still for lovers."
