"If Lady Caroline Lamb had met Carlo Parcelli, it is he whom she would have declared "mad, bad, and dangerous to know" instead of Lord Byron. Carlo is a force of nature and an unique voice in the literary world, whether writing and performing poetry or monologues that are certain to challenge and keep awake the most indifferent of listeners. I am fortunate to have met him, read him, seen him perform, and count him as a friend and contemporary." - William F. DeVault, US National Beat Poet Laureate Emeritus
"Mad genius Carlo Parcelli's work is pure fire, where intellect, mythology, bright irreverence and cold hard reality converge and boil over in an electric chemical reaction that will leave you contemplating where you've been, why it felt so good, and eager to return for a second sizzling." - John Burroughs, poet, spoken word artist, and founding editor of Crisis Chronicles Press
"For five decades Carlo Parcelli has been extending and reinventing the Modern Epic, which Ezra Pound famously defined as 'a poem with history.' But to history Parcelli has also added epistemology and, like Sir Isaac Newton, religion and science. Only, unlike the dour Newton, Parcelli is ferociously funny and hilariously perverse!" - Jack Foley, novelist, playwright, and editor of FlashPoint Magazine
"Carlo Parcelli is a gentle man yet a strong presence, sometimes transforming himself like Moses, ready to part the seas. Once taking the stage, he takes command of the audience. His poetry is highly assertive and their stories take your mind to another time, with his East End Cockney accent and Shakespearean rhetoric. His words are as true today as they would have been in days they are set in. Carlo weaves words together like a master craftsman. It's a true pleasure to read, listen to and be in the presence of this multi talented man. " - Debbie Tosun Kilday, Co-Owner & Founder of National Beat Poetry Foundation, Inc.
"From the mist of history from the tides of time. Carlo is an elegant and commanding stage presence . Every bit the druid every bit the modern bard, Carlo immediately warms the literary Pilgrim with warm Poetry stew and word woven honey bread ." - Colin Haskins, Co-Owner & Founder of National Beat Poetry Foundation, Inc.
"Carlo Parcelli is a poet at the peak of his craft. Whether it's Roman history, Greek mythology or Sir Isaac Newton, he presents a deeply satirical and profound vision of the destructive nature of Western science and technology, Enlightenment philosophy, and religion. Read this deeply original poet if you dare." - Jim Angelo, Editor
