Bio:

Sean Fraser was born in 1953.


His Grandfather introduced him to Chas. Addams and Pogo in 1965. [His Grandfather's complete set of Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf, i.e., The Harvard Classics, would be read in the 1980s.] Ballantine Paperbacks and Dover Books were essential. Mad Magazine and, later, Zap Comix &c were read. He was introduced to the works of Edward Gorey in 1970. A fine foundation. 


He graduated High School; and, thereafter, was a writer who studied under Professors Baudelaire, Mallarmé, and Apollinaire following High School. His written work includes teleplays, screenplays, white papers, adverts, procedures, manuals, et al. The writing style of his literary works is a portmanteau of Romanticisme, Décadentisme, and Symbolisme wherein those written works may be considered variations on a Theme in which leitmotifs of Chaos, Existence, and Dreams are used in all after having been seen at the Peep-shows and Sideshows of Logic and Reason.


Théorèmes, Rhymes & Tales: Voyages et «Pièces condamnées, galanteries, epigraphes, pièces diverses & bouffonneries1» (including maxims, adagia, and aphorisms, gnomes and saws [unless otherwise acknowledged]) have been written by him. «La Femme Eidôlon : A Tale» eBook [http://self.gutenberg.org/eBooks/WPLBN0004102400-La-Femme-Eid-lon--A-Tale-by-Fraser-Sean.aspx] was written over a Thirty-year Entr'acte. He has Chimera pièces, too.

La Femme Eidôlon : A Tale

By: Sean Fraser

A Concrete Verse poem which may be considered an elegiac Idyll on Beauty as Idée was written over a Thirty-year Entr'acte. It was composed of and with occurrences that began in 1963 of which some lines may be found in poems from "Miss Crabtree's Daughters" and "On the Nature of Existence".

Light as ponderous settling fog obscures | Reflections of flesh once was | Hundred-year mirror | Age has | photographs belied | They silently exist | by prusse Moon lit: | forgotten | were Reminiscences to be found; | Sorrows in Solitude solace consoled by one not seen; | embraces and caresses adumbrated | by Presence; | Existence frolicked imp-like: | Revelments paled | Resplendences paled | The currents set by Chronos slowed in the dark of Chaos; | And Beauty smiling |...
