Review


An exemplar of epic poetry, a rare gift in this day and age, or in ANY day and age!
San Francisco Review of Books

Deeply stirring, intelligent, and amusing in turn...
Jonathan Matthews, Amazon.co.uk

Captivated me from start to end... I like the writer's style.
Reader, Amazon.co.uk

A must-read for those into politics and literature... A true classic.
Steve, Amazon.co.uk

From the Author


I began this story in the Spring of 2015, when I imagined angels intervening in the course of current history. And as the story developed, I embraced the parallels with Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

Both works have night-time visitations of spirits who present the protagonist with a series of scenes to transform him. I also made sure to include my favourite episodes of the Old Testament: Ezekiel 1, Zechariah 3, and Isaiah 6.

But John Milton's Paradise Lost, with its great seraph Abdiel, was the key inspiration. So profound is the impact of this epic poem on my life that I not only changed my official name to Abdiel in 2013, but went on to give the angel recurring roles in this poem as well as my signature epic poem, Elijah.

I also relished devising Satan, whom the Bible describes as a fallen angel, the father of lies, the accuser of the brethren, and one who masquerades as an angel of light. But the potrayal was further enriched, albeit unwittingly in his case, by the tactics and demeanour of a devious opponent I was contending with in court at the time.

If you would like to hear my readings from Obama's Dream or any of my other published works, you can find them at poetprophet.com.

Enjoy!
Abdiel
