John Casey • Novelist and Poet Exploring The Human Condition
Things of Little Consequence is a philosophical exploration of sentiment, musings, and circumstance that poetically suggests the human condition is less complex than it is complicated—that life is not as enigmatic or indecipherable as we often prefer to believe.
For many, it somehow becomes easier to adhere to the mystical, to the cryptic and the Kafkaesque when confronted with a thousand disparate pieces of life because we sense it would be impossible to comprehend the grand sum of it all, or how those pieces even interconnect. Consequently, we feel we cannot come to understand the individual parts.
John Casey’s poetic philosophy of Things suggests that we can. That life is much simpler than most perceive. The human condition is not so confusing as it seems.
"Things of Little Consequence offers a captivating exploration into the reasons why individuals seek solace in the mystical and cryptic aspects of life. John Casey, through his poetic philosophy, asserts that life, despite its complexities, harbors a profound simplicity that often eludes us. For those seeking a book that ignites both the intellect and the heart, Things of Little Consequence is undoubtedly a must-read. Casey's masterful compositions engage the soul, leaving a lasting impact that lingers far beyond the final pages."
"John Casey has written something of worth beyond its appeal to poetry lovers. Things of Little Consequence potentially offers a different way of living for those forming life patterns. In reflectively probing what it means to be human, Things of Little Consequence both realizes and transcends a work of exceptional art."
