When faced with the bitter truth that a life at sea would not sustain his appetite, a youthful alchemist decides to pursue fulfillment above all else.
GUADALAJARA, JA, MEXICO, November 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- “Fond landscapes are not behind us/ Distract not visions of the past/ Move onward from specter glances/ As upward bounds the tool recast.”— Excerpt from Tower of the Lonely Alchemist: A Short Story Paced by Poetry by Isaac Kroll.
Author Isaac Kroll will be one of the featured authors in the upcoming Guadalajara International Book Fair 2021 with his published book titled Tower of the Lonely
Alchemist: A Short Story Paced by Poetry. The story is described as follows: “When faced with the bitter truth that a life at sea would not sustain his appetite, a youthful alchemist decides to pursue fulfillment above all else. He utilizes his gift of observation and an understanding of science passed on by a childhood mentor to kickstart a life of his own. Along the way, he encounters kind strangers who boost him toward cracking a forbidden secret that could change the world: how to turn ordinary objects into gold.”
Interspersed are 38 poems, all of which bring variety through concept, structure/style, and word choice. Their relation to the story is mysterious, allowing for a read that is less straightforward child’s play and more up to personal interpretation. It is a short read and is highly recommended for those new to poetry and short stories; that being said, the content depth makes the book just as riveting at higher reading levels. Isaac Kroll grew up in a small town in Northern Michigan and credits his high school English teacher with his love for poetry. He has recently expanded to short stories and decided to intertwine the two so that readers can appreciate a tale of adventure and one of everyday life.
