Ladies and gentlemen, step right up, don’t be shy, and enter the rhyming gyre of glosas, forty-four line rock operas, poetic pas de deux, created by troubadours of the medieval Spanish courts. Dead to Rights: A Circularity of Glosas features eighteen dramatic mini-tales, introduced by quatrains and philosophies that include Poe, Milton, Epictetus and Dickens; spun to effervescence by the spirited Alain C. Dexter.
“Glosas deliver like a compact short story, in stereo; they’re a poetic high energy drink, a double shot espresso of verse. You can read one glosa and read it again several times to experience a kaleidoscope effect of something new with each reread. Or you can take in a whole wallop of them and begin to sense the underlying structure that gives the glosa its… well, glisten.”
— Alain C. Dexter
