Breath Torn Away by September 11th -- A New Literary Collection of Fascinating Proportions

E. FALMOUTH, Mass., July 6, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As an American, William E. Dickinson watched with disbelief as terror arrived from the skies on September 11. As a poet, he took an emotional journey as the tragic story unfolded. In his new poetry collection, Breath Torn Away by Sept. 11th, he writes beautifully crafted poems dedicated to every soul affected by the 9/11 tragedy. A special thought is given to those who died, the heroes, the survivors, the families, and the people left with terror at the door.

Breath Torn Away by Sept 11th celebrates the human spirit and how it weathered the tragedy. It is, at the same time, a poetic chronology of 9/11 depicting the elements of a Greek tragedy but on the level of actual human experience. "The book zeroes in on the day itself but, even more, it tells the story of the people towering above this tragedy-people helping strangers and friends as dust and fear permeated the clear blue sky above," says Dickinson, an accomplished poet and a descendant of Emily Dickinson.
