In fourteen lines, her sonnets in particular are able to communicate what takes essayists and writers thousands of words.-- Evan Mantyk, President, The Society of Classical Poets“The words and lines of this book are so alive with emotion...She has achieved something rare and special, in my view— with lines that waste not a single word, lines that carry the weight of strong feeling… hers is an original and powerful voice for our time.”--Hank Whittemore, author of The Monument: Shake-speares Sonnets by Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of OxfordAn unusual and delightful approach that kept me excited for the next piece and I was genuinely moved by the classic beauty of each.-- Carla Christopher, Poet Laureate Emeritus, York County, PennsylvaniaRodriguezs first book of poetry is a gleaning and winnowing of the work of her poetry over thirty years.

In Jesus and Eros: Sonnets, Poems and Songs, Rodriguez wished to deliberately offer three types of poetry and chose not to categorize by theme but by type. The song section are actual songs that Rodriguez has sung- the Kindle version of Jesus and Eros is being updated to provide hyperlinks to actual renditions by Theresa Rodriguez with guitar that one may click through and view. The poem section contains a variety of styles, some classical, formed and metered, some in unrhymed verse. The nineteen sonnets reflect topics not usually employed by the sonnet form: homelessness, the murder of a child, the suicide of a friend, Christian hypocrisy, martyrdom, depression, even odes to the Bard himself.Theresa Rodriguez performs her electric poetry in Spoken Word and is being recognized as a valuable feature poet for public readings.

She is a contributing writer for Classical Singer magazine and is a member of the voice faculty at the Community School of Music at the Goggleworks Center for the Arts in Reading, Pennsylvania.

To see her interview about Jesus and Eros please visit this youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dyzn...Rodriguez is taking the definition of eros from C.S.

Lewis, who describes eros as the state of being in love as opposed to sexual or carnal love, to which he ascribes the more archaic rendering of Venus. She chooses, therefore, a deliberate juxtaposition of devout Christian ideology with the heat and heart of honest and naked human feelings.
