Books Info:

Painting Over Sketches of Anatolia free pdf "Painting Over Sketches of Anatolia" is Leonard Neufeldt's seventh book of poetry. In it, we find wars, revolutions, the holocaust, obsolete belief systems, Alzheimer's and ever-present potentialities of the autistic as well as the illusory in the spoken or written word. A dying Plato tries to fight off intrusions of reality. Neufeldt questions whether one can find rootedness in an ethos quite unlike one's own. The realities of discovering and settling in Turkey are uppermost, with "Gulls of the Bosporus/ screaming behind you, / a city's minarets floating free." But the poems offer deepening lenses as the narrator enters a place of beauty, mystery, legend, painful history, irksome tourists, welcome and joy -- the joy of olive picking, for example, with Mamut's stunning wife: "The rake/ [she] gives me with a Yes/No shake/ of her head is smooth in my hands/ like skin tingling with details as I climb/ the ladder's rungs." As for the snake in the stone wall that does no harm, "May it live for a thousand years."
