Step back in time with this collection of Victorian style verse, penned by an award-winning and evocative poet of the modern age. Neo-Victorian poetry, a subset of the Steampunk genre, is once again finding favor. In keeping with this style, Echoes hearkens back to a more elegant era with rhyming schemes and lyrical turns, yet it does so from the vantage point of the 21th century. Once relegated to dusty shelves and largely ignored, a recent resurgence of interest in all things Steampunk is fueling a re-examination of this unique and highly refined art form. Janice T studied vicariously under Coleridge, Wordsworth and Millay, along with many other acclaimed poets who wrote between 1250 to 1918. Steeped in these profound influences, her writing style echos back to “steamier” times. Brew a cup of tea, find a cozy corner, hope for a rainy day, and indulge in the resonant ambiance of Echoes, Neo-Victorian Poetry.

There are captured moments and reflections, as well as epic storytelling, notably a long poem on the journey of a fox, and several dramatic (and often tragic) visions of the sea. As poems do, there ar...
