About the Book
(An echo of the Prometheus Trilogy by Æschylus)
Relative Einstein is an original parody of Prometheus Bound, by Aeschylus. The physicist, accused by Jehovah of the theft of nuclear secrets, stands bound to the Scythian rocks where Prometheus once suffered for his theft of fire. Mahatma Gandhi, Marilyn Monroe, Dylan Thomas, Hermann Göring, even FDR and Eleanor are called into the tale before all is told.
East Point West Press is all about poetry. My name is Griffith H. Williams, poet, illustrator, printer and binder. Within my rustic one man shop I use an antique letterpress to print volumes of original poetry. Each book, whether a hardback collectors’ edition or a limited run chapbook, features original linoleum block prints. My books, often written in formal verse, cover a wide range of topics; nature poetry, historical verse, mythological themes, lyrical reflection, and poetry for children. Many of my poems follow the formal structures of Welsh bardic verse. Each book is beautifully printed on acid free paper and hand sewn to create a timeless work of art. Books form the backbone of my catalog, but I also print original greeting cards, broadsides, Poetic Licenses and Tag Lines. Bridging the gap between old and new, I am now using Blurb's print-on-demand technology to bring lower-cost versions of my work to the modern era.
