Paul Legault

The Tower

The Tower pays homage to and reinvents the poet's most famous work. Unlike Yeats' work, which dealt with his mortality as an old spiritualist Irish Senator, our version deals with a different kind of death: ours.

Justin Marks' third collection of poems is an engrossing look at masculinity, capitalism, disease, the doldrums of perceived mediocrity, and the trials of the restless, searching intellect.

These poems are about establishing touch and forging connections. The poetry in this book are full with flashing light. In these poems, the intellect at work is not little. It's big, it's growing, and it's yearning for love.

Testimonials and Reviews for the featured authors and their work:


"The Tower continues his project of rubbing the old songs to produce blissful new serums... How he manages to extract such tonally exacting fun from fallen fruit is a secret I beg him never to divulge."


"Time is playing a joke on you in these poems: it's a house, or a kind of radio, filled of basic pleasures. Whatever it is, it is an excellent read."

Sterling Lawyers

"This book is great, I honestly would recommend it to anybody and everybody! The story is not hard to grasp, but the allusion to everything is what's really pleasurable about reading it."
