Reflections on the human condition

Anoesis [an-oh-ee-sis]: A state of mind consisting of pure sensation or emotion without cognitive content

*** Literary Critics ***

In this collection of very short, poignant poems, Vienney Carpentier’s skills as a keen observer of phenomena are everywhere evident. His rendition of reality is done with photographic clarity. His language functions on many levels and is rife with intellectual playfulness, beginning with the very title Anoesis.

Vienney’s thoughts kept us entertained while reading aloud around a great BBQ meal with friends. We laughed at how he can see a different angle on human thoughts and emotions. His humourous way of writing had us giggling and at times, it made us stop and reflect upon the weaved messages. We enjoyed the many puns used. Thank you, Vienney, for brightening our evening.
