Grand Gnostic Central
Bryan Sentes writes with a rare breadth of sensibility and style: bardic declamation and intimate lyric, ironic oracle and tart satire, incantatory deconstructions and romantic nature hymns. In this, his first full-length collection of poetry, subjects ranging from the chopping block of History to childhood memories, from Meister Eckhart to flying saucers, are rendered in a manner no less unsettling and exhilarating than the world around us.
Grand Gnostic Central is a poetic and philosophical work resolutely bent on wringing a delirious lucidity from the white noise at the start of the new Millennium...
The stars are all arranged in such a way
As to suggest an endless emptiness
Or heavens full of foreign deities.
...skill and professional polish.... captures that rare, spontaneous chemistry of language finding language.
The Montreal Gazette
...a strong sense of the minds quest for transcendental meaning.... Sentes is a mature artist with serious things to say.
Canadian Book Review Annual
Ironic , sometimes satiric, Sentes verse is philosophical and attuned to the nuances of rare and pivotal moments in time.
