Soul of a Warrior

soul of a warrior - clash of weapons, Konaa, S.G. Renee The first thing you’ll notice about this book is the art work, which if you are anything like me, you’ll find yourself turning the pages and imbibing the images. Only after soaking up the their beauty, will you turn to the words and realise with this beauty comes horror, because Soul of a Warrior is a collection of war stories describing conflict in all it’s forms; whether this is the blood and guts physicality of battle, or whether the engagement is internal, the strife dealing with instabilities of the mind or soulThe tale is told as a series of poems written by S.G. Renee, and are interpretations of the artwork of Konaa. Another of the poems cleverly uses Miyamoto Musashi’s *The Book of Five Rings (五輪書 Go Rin No Sho ) as it’s way of interpreting the artwork, using each of the five books (The Book of Earth,The Book of Water, The Book of Fire, The Book of Wind,The Book of the Void) as a verse in this poem, this idea really appealed and fits wonderfully with the theme of battles, whether they were old wars or those still being fought.http://parrishlantern.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/guided-by-angels-haunted-by-gaki.html
