Odes to the Woman in Vermillion
James L Baumann
J. L. Baumann has wide range of work in many genres and styles, but Odes to the Woman in Vermillion, a
poetical collection that beckons the mind to succumb to the heart, has been described as “superb.”
Enjoying world-wide distribution, whether a novel, documentary, short story, or collection of poetry, his
empathetic revelations of a mind’s struggle to define its own reality in the face of the intangible concept
of love and beauty, is constantly at play. “Even the tragic can be beautiful,” he provocatively submits.
