This is what my publisher Anterior Books says about As Silence Is Your Witness.
As Silence Is Your Witness is the first book of poems in The Golden Passage, a trilogy of books by internationally known poet Charlotte Brady. In this newest collection of poems, Brady deeply explores the spectrum of human emotion. She boldly faces existential dilemmas that lie within each of us, and releases profound responses that sweep across our minds and make us see ourselves and the world around us more clearly. Her method of asking pointed and philosophical questions combined with her lyrical use of language create a safe harbor for traveling beyond the boundaries of our minds and increasing our understanding of the human condition. Brady confronts topics such as intolerance, fear, and suffering with a steady gaze and an open heart. She discusses nature, love, and happiness with fresh understanding and memorable wisdom. As Silence Is Your Witness is a brave excavation into the mystery of life and the search for freedom with a constant reminder that the capacity for peace and joy is within each of us.
