CarloParcelli channeling the spirit of the apostle Simon Kananaios aka
Simon the Zealot will be performing selected monologues from his
Canaanite Gospel: A Meditation on Empire at the Boog Festival August
3^rd at the Sidewalk Café as well as a full one and one half hour
performance at theBowery Poetry Club on August 4^th at 6:30 PM. Will he
again cast his rod into a serpent as he did at Busboys and Poets in DC?
Or will an indignant God smite the blasphemer and the Archbishop nix his
celestial cabaret card?

88 of the 93 monologues comprising the Gospel According to Simon
Kananaios appear in scroll form and are available at Country Valley
Press. Read what reviewers have to say:

The book's primary literary inspiration may be David Jones, who after
WWI wrote long poems like "Anathemata" implicitly comparing the Roman
and British empires. Present also is the ghost of Ezra Pound, who made a
comparable juxtaposition of eras in "Homage to Sextus Propertius." Maybe
POUND is the more appropriate citation, for his "Propertius" showed
poets the use of a persona to double the poetic voice--that is, make it
speak more than one idiolect at a time. --- Wayne Pounds Pound Scholar
and Professor Aoyama University <http://aoyama.academia.edu/>, English
<http://aoyama.academia.edu/Departments/English>, Faculty Memberof
Literature Tokyo

The power of these monologue meditations comes from a bravura use of
language reminiscent of JOYCE or Burgess. The 88 monologues are a
calliope of argots, "profane, blasphemous, obscene and peppered with
ethnic slurs." --- Wayne Pounds Pound Scholar and Aoyama University
<http://aoyama.academia.edu/>, English
<http://aoyama.academia.edu/Departments/English>, Faculty Member and
Professor of Literature Tokyo

Carlo Parcelli's Canaanite Gospel is a work of astonishing wit and
temerity that infuses the Synoptic Gospels with vitality, relevance, and
urgency by breaking open the complacent vanity which has enrobed the
gospels in recent memory. --- Jennifer Johnston

Ferocious, hilarious, deeply and richly imagined, The Canaanite Gospel
projects a world as new and undiscovered as it is disturbingly
recognizable. --- Jack Foley, novelist, playwright and editor

"The Canaanite Gospel" -- an unapologetically revisionist (not to say
irreverent: but I'll OK, I'll say it. . . ) telling of scenes around the
gospel stories, with a "Passover Plot" premise. Most interesting were
the voices inspired by David Jones's Roman poems -- Carlo performed part
of "The Fatigue" in cockney voice, per David Jones's suggestion in the
preface to In Parenthesis, to set up the voice of his own Roman captain,
one Severenus. A terrific performance..." --- Kathleen Henderson Staudt
teacher, poet and spiritual director at the University of Maryland,
College Park, Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria and Wesley
Seminary in Washington, DC

I absolutely understand Parcelli's hints that the whole shebang wrote
itself, as though 'dictated': the author the vessel through which the
Rite makes itself manifest. Right and proper because that is the nature
of religion (surely?) that it is revealed - and here that revelation is
itself revealed in a new and this-minute - eighty-eight poems long! -
vision. It has that belief in itself. 'Reverse engineering an empire!'
he calls it. --- Alan Tucker antiquarian and poet
