NO WORDS . . . JUST NEWS
By mixing hardcore realities with the verities of the heart, Peter Jacob Streitz broadcasts a spiritual news that envisions the social condition - as mothers consisting of every chemical in the cosmos, and the great unwashed being as essential to the human phalanx as the corporate elite, intelligentsia, or celebrities. His gritty and perceptive poetry strikes at doctrine and nihilism alike.

P. J. Streitz's poetry is not for the ...
By F. Hollister Savidge on July 17, 2015
P.J. Streitz's poetry is not for the faint of heart. Yet if you make the effort, you will be well rewarded. At times Eliot and Kerouac, his poetry stretches the imagination. The rich and varied cadence and metaphor invite one into a world where language, his language, thoughtful and provoking, opens up vistas into a land where secure boundaries and familiar worlds are smashed. And out of the ruins, comes not a new order but an appreciation for his iconoclastic vision of the old one. It is a vision worth declaiming, and similarly worth experiencing; an exciting, poignant hellish romp. "Hellfires Shake the Blues," as well as his praiseworthy novel, "Past Oz," deserve a prominent perch on any lover of literature's bookshelf.

Hellfires Shake the Blues is a deeply moving book of poetry. It is filled with many poems that will strike a chord with many readers. I am very sure that anyone will find several poems they will enjoy, if not all of the poems. I highly recommend this book for all the poetry lovers out there. If you have never really cared for poetry, give this book a try and I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I have!
