The Spider's Insider

Author Interviews

Interviews with Venetian Spider Press authors and contributors...we call them the V-spiders!

Mad, bad, and dangerous to know...

Isaac Newton's Scalder, Abraham, Prophesies the End of the World

Carlo Parcelli:

Monologist, poet, modern vaudevillian, Maryland State Beat Poet Laureate

Isaac Newton's Scalder, Isaac, Prophesies the End of the World

A blistering wordsmithing of history, philosophy, political rave, and poetry.  

"Mad genius Carlo Parcelli's work is pure fire, where intellect, mythology, bright irreverence and cold hard reality converge and boil over in an electric chemical reaction that will leave you contemplating where you've been, why it felt so good, and eager to return for a second sizzling." - John Burroughs, poet, spoken word artist, and founding editor of Crisis Chronicles Press


"For five decades Carlo Parcelli has been extending and reinventing the Modern Epic, which Ezra Pound famously defined as 'a poem with history.' But to history Parcelli has also added epistemology and, like Sir Isaac Newton, religion and science. Only, unlike the dour Newton, Parcelli is ferociously funny and hilariously perverse!" - Jack Foley, novelist, playwright, and editor of FlashPoint Magazine


"Carlo Parcelli is a gentle man yet a strong presence, sometimes transforming himself like Moses, ready to part the seas. Once taking the stage, he takes command of the audience. His poetry is highly assertive and their stories take your mind to another time, with his East End Cockney accent and Shakespearean rhetoric. His words are as true today as they would have been in days they are set in. Carlo weaves words together like a master craftsman. It's a true pleasure to read, listen to and be in the presence of this multi talented man. " - Debbie Tosun Kilday, Co-Owner & Founder of National Beat Poetry Foundation, Inc.
