          Carlo Parcelli studied and worked for many years with the Joyce/Wake scholar,
Dr. Rudd Fleming, who translated Greek drama with Ezra Pound while Pound was incarcerated at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, DC. He has published two books in the style of Pound’s Cantos, ‘Three Antiphonies’ and ‘Fernparallelismus’.

He has also published a series of 88 monologues, ‘The Gospel According to Simon Kananaios: A Meditation on Empire’ based on the Anglo/Welsh poet David Jones’ monologues of a Roman principalis in his volume ‘The Sleeping Lord’.  Carlo has a forthcoming epic poem about a fictitious First Century Roman cynic philosopher called ‘Canus Ictus in Exilium’ (Dog Bite in Exile). His work, generally excerpted, has appeared in a number of journals including Exquisite Corpse, Make It New, Brave New Word and Science as Culture. He has performed his work, especially ‘The Gospel’ at dozens of venues including the Boog Poetry Festival, The National Beat Poetry Festival, The Bowery Poetry Club and Busboys and Poets in Washington, DC. He is currently an editor at Flashpoint magazine :

What actually transpired Easter Week/Passover 33 A.D.?
The Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth was a Hoax!

Culled from First Century Texts and drawn from dozens of biblical and secular sources, these monologues tell a revisionist tale of what transpired in Judea, Easter Week/Passover 33 AD and beyond during the reign of the Roman Emperor Tiberius.     

In the classical argots of Petronius, Rabelais, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Lenny Bruce, Guy Ritchie,
James Joyce, David Jones, Cockney and the world's myriad cryptolects, The Canaanite Gospel strips bare the New Testament canard of the Resurrection of Yeshu of Nazareth and pokes a
stick in the eye of the Synoptic Gospels.
