Arioso is a collection of Carol Adler’s poems selected from three previously published volumes of her poetry, that in turn were collected from poems that appeared in a large number of literary and general interest magazines.
The title, Arioso, refers to a term used in classical music.
It is a style of solo opera singing that is not quite recitative and not quite aria.
“In poetry, I like to call it ‘the space between lines,’” says Adler.
“Like the background of a painting or the lighting in a photograph, in poetry, the space is where all the action is.
“Also known for its unrestrained structure and inflexions, close to those of speech, so is much of my poetry,” says Adler. “It is greatly influenced by classical music and the visual arts.”
Carol Adler’s first ghost-written book listing her name as co-editor, Why Am I Still Addicted? A Holistic Approach to Recovery, was endorsed by Deepak Chopra, M.D., and published by McGraw-Hill.
Other publications include three books on writing & publishing, three novels, four books of poetry, and well over 200 poems in literary journals.
She has ghostwritten over 40 non-fiction and fiction works for a number of professionals in the education, health care and human potential industries.
Her business experience includes co-ownership of a Palm Beach, FL public relations company and executive management positions in two U.S. rejuvenation and mind/body wellness corporations, for which she founded publishing divisions.
Carol has served as editor of several poetry and literary magazines. Her career experience includes extensive teaching of college-level creative and business writing, and conducting of writing workshops in prisons, libraries, elementary, junior and high schools, and senior citizen centers.
