Ladonian Magnitudes: The Book

The State Secretary of Ladonia has had the honour of receiving a copy of Ladonian Magnitudes. Poems by the Canadian author Bryan Sentes. I have read it. At least once. It can be read many times as the poems are exploring the no man’s land between social reality and reality imagination. The author tells us a lot about food, in Germany and in Hungary, he pays frequent visits to the classical antiquity and even a trip to Magonia among the clouds. A rich collection in the tradition of T S Eliot and James Joyce.

Mr Sentes has also found that Ladon is the name not only of one river in Greek, but two, and that a commune in the Loiret also is named Ladon.
