Publisher's Summary

A long-form poem of negation and egoism, of scorn and cynical delight.

Critic Reviews

"There is but one Benjamin DeCasseres. And he is perhaps the one living wonder of the literary world. It is fortunate that such an one must be born, that he cannot be made; especially that he cannot be imitated, for if every one wrote like DeCasseres readers would go mad. That he can keep in any semblance of thought-order such whirls of words is something to marvel at. Yet to read him once, twice, is to experience the greatest mental exhilaration." (The New York Times)
"Benjamin DeCasseres (is) the Pontius Pilate of America." (H.L. Mencken)
"A passionate, erratic poet...strives to shake the foundation of the world." (The Saturday Review of Literature)

Salvation in a sneer.

Would you consider the audio edition of Anathema!: Litanies of Negation to be better than the print version?

It is better than the print in that you get fantastic production and a marvelous narrator- with a dynamic voice and obvious passion for the work.

What did you like best about this story?

It is provocative and inspiring and quite funny at times.
