James Sale Poetry

The English Cantos is the provisional name for a sequence of 33 Cantos that James is attempting to write in the style of Dante using the terza rima. His aim is to create a contemporary epic of heaven and hell that stands four-square against the meaninglessness of post-modernism.

"A wonderful emulation of Dante’s intent as we look for a multiplicity of images, intentions, characters and thoughts throughout the poem. Terrific and thank you."  

"Outstanding! There are too many words to describe this great poem, so I will just say Wow!"

"James, this is an ambitious project you have taken on with the Cantos series. However, judging by the depth of feeling, faith, and power harnessed through personal experience evident in Canto 1, you will achieve a modern version worthy of Dante’s example."

"Very nice reading of the first canto of this ambitious poetic project. Poetry has its roots in oration, especially epic poetry - the very best poetry is meant to be read aloud, and this work sounds so good when read aloud. Thanks for posting this video!" Josh Harris
