A book by Derly Andre

< read all 1 reviews


  • Jul 14, 2007
Pneumatrix-A Poetic Soul is a compilation of the author's poems over a period of thirty years. These works illustrate the authors' changes from an arrogant rugby player with a strong interest in women and beer to a spiritual philosopher who reflects on true beauty and the love of friends and family. That the author is willing to share all parts of himself along this journey is both unique and refreshing, creating a feeling of experiencing a real person in all his deepest trials and greatest triumphs. Moreover, this aspect allows the reader to connect to those parts of him or herself that are usually left carefully hidden from the rest of the world.

The works contained in Pneumatrix-A Poetic Soul are divided into eight sections: Time of the Times, Growing Up, Love, Relationships, Women, Stuck or Lost, Sad Times, and Pneumatics. Each poem in these sections is preceded with a little text box explaining the time period of the poem, the incident that inspired the poem, or a little background about the author's purpose to the story. These text boxes also identify the context of the work within the author's life changes.
