Book Description

The Able Muse Anthology — from the new Able Muse Press — celebrates Able Muse's journey through its first decade and beyond, by showcasing the best of the published poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, book reviews, art and photography, including a foreword by Timothy Steele. This anthology has received high praise and acclaim from Dana Gioia, David Mason, Charles Martin, Catharine Savage-Brosman, X.J. Kennedy, Catharine Savage Brosman and others.


. . . This book fills an important gap in understanding what is really happening in early twenty first century American poetry.   – Dana Gioia.

. . . You hold in your hands a remarkable anthology of poems, translations, an interview, essays, short stories and visual art.   – David Mason.

. . . This extraordinarily rich collection of fiction, poetry, essays and art by so many gifted enablers of the Muse is both a present satisfaction and a promise of future performance.   – Charles Martin.

. . . Neither unskilled, lethargic, nor distracted from their proper enterprise, the muses in the past decade have been singularly able, as this outstanding anthology of work from The Able Muse demonstrates.   – Catharine Savage-Brosman.

. . . Here's a generous serving of the cream of Able Muse, including not only formal verse but nonmetrical work that also displays careful craft, memorable fiction (seven remarkable stories), striking artwork and photography, and incisive critical prose.   – X.J. Kennedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Controversy? Oct. 7 2010
By William A. Conelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The nude on this anthology's cover---although she appears able to get on the table, and is tastefully displayed in her attempt---has drawn negative commentary. Is she an underaged muse? Is she a distraction from the fine compositions she covers? Is the female form---even here? even now?---being commercially deployed? And, goodness me, what extraneous thoughts does Editor Pepple's choice bare concerning traditional form and narrative?

Friends, these reactions are tempestuous brewings in a tea party tea pot. Measured by the poem, the story, the essay or interview, the muse's voice this anthology is both readable and memorable. Enjoy it. Enjoy them. And let the lady have a body.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ab le Muse Review Oct. 22 2011
By Kristina K. Estebo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was so happy to receive my copy of the Able Muse Review. The book features rhyming poetry. The poems are beautifully written and polished. After reading the book I even rewrote some of my own poems to make them rhyme so I could submit them for acceptance into the publication.
