Philoetry Volume I by poet Joel Webber is a short collection of rhyming poetry that revolves around topics that each and every one of us can see going on in the world today. We find ourselves faced daily with pockets of revolution, marches, protests, rallies, and also extreme violence, and some of the aforementioned will be touched upon inside these pages. Included in this collection are also subject matters of love and freedom which will wrap you into the pages in a way that is most endearing. Although the poems are brief, they carry the similar thread of the old school poets' style, which has a way of sticking to the “ribs” of our mind a bit more than most of your average poetry out there on the shelves today.

Joel Webber’s Philoetry Volume I spoke to me on several levels as a human being, as someone who is deeply concerned with the way that the world is at the moment, and the need for social change. The classic feel to this collection of poetry takes me back to my early teenage years when I was first discovering Lord George Gordon Byron, whom I loved to the point that I memorized two of his poems. Poetry that can take you back in time to your youth is something well worth getting your hands on. If you have a penchant for the old school poets of rhyme, you will want to add this to your own personal library.
