Readers will likely know Richard Levy better through his musical nom de plume Richard Leviathan, member of foundational neofolk acts Ostara and Strength Through Joy. Fans who have been enthralled with the wistful elegance of his lyrics over the last two decades can now experience his writing in a volume of original poetry.
Odes is an eighty-page volume published by Troy Southgate‘s Black Front Press, made up of expertly crafted stanzas on fate and fortune, and the ideas and idiosyncrasies of provocative figures such as Antonin Artaud, Carl Gustav Jung, Georges Bataille, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Helene “Leni” Riefenstahl, Julius Evola, Oswald Spengler, Martin Heidegger, Friedrich Nietzsche, Albert Camus, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Ernst Jünger, Jean Genet, Ezra Pound, Yukio Mishima, Marquis de Sade, Edgar Allan Poe, John Keats, and Adolf Hitler.
His dactylic outpourings will thrill fans of music and literature alike, and establish Levy as the poet laureate of forgotten Europe.
The book is complemented by cover art and layout by Polish artist Bogusart.
Odes is available for pre-order from Black Front Press for 13 euros, postage paid to any location worldwide.
