The Compendium by Brian Corvin

a selection of poetry, short stories, plays and an essay

The Compendium is author, Brian Corvin's third published work. Where his first two – The Dream Journey (2010) and The Unity Project (2016) – were books of poetry and verse, the present volume is something different.

The first section consists of a selection of neohaikus and social verse while, the second introduces the reader to some quirky short stories, taking on tales of the macabre, offering unexpected twists. This is followed by a trilogy of related one-act plays, which look at the suffering caused by clerical child abuse, questioning whether redemption and forgiveness is ever really possible. The volume finishes with an autobiographical fragment (Towards a New World Order) in which he describes how he became a Baha'i.

The author, Brian Corvin, was born in Dublin, Ireland eighty years ago but, he sees himself as a world citizen, He has been inspired by Bahaullah, the prophet of globalisation but, feels that his writing should be grounded in the here and now of the world he finds around him.
