Jan 28, 2022

Recent release “Soulsongs: Poems by Jeff Schade” from Newman Springs Publishing author Jeff Schade consists of 102 poems, ranging in style from short lyric poems to longer poems in free and semi-free verse, organized into twelve thematic sections representing the cycle of birth and death and ultimate liberation.

Jeff Schade, a lifelong poet and musician, has completed his new book “Soulsongs: Poems by Jeff Schade”: a stunning collection of poems about life. Schade grew up in the Midwest and has a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and a master’s degree in English. He lives in Nebraska with his wife and daughter. 

Using his background in writing and philosophy, Schade puts forth his own attempt to answer the age-old question, “What is poetry?” In the vein of Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, and Ralph Waldo Emerson, Schade puts forth in his thesis, that there is an inherent and transcendent meaning in poetry that is distinct from the purely lexical meanings of the words. “The thesis disputes the definition of modernism as a shift from a musical model of poetry to a visual model, and argues that the musical element of poetry is essential to its aesthetic content,” Schade writes. 

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Schade’s gorgeous collection includes a 23-page introduction outlining the aesthetic principles underlying poetry, in particular its connection with music. Readers can learn more about Schade’s music and writing or purchase the companion CD for this book online at
