The Mental Traveler by David Omer Bearden
The Mental Traveler is a lost-then-found manuscript of 20th-century American poetry that was completed in 1990, but remained unpublished. Now released for the first time, The MentalTraveler reveals a notable range of David Omer Bearden’s work, starting with his formative years in 1958 while attending the University of Tulsa.
Bearden’s ingenuity takes you on an autobiographical journey that challenges and elevates literature with innovative words and surrealist expression that is spiritually trans-dimensional. The mind-space and language presented throughout David’s work are diligently curated like a scientist formulating conceptual metaphors with purpose and soul.
David Omer Bearden is the surviving brother of twins born in the Sonoran Desert of Blythe, California in 1940. David dedicated his creative life to writing poetry, starting from the post-Beat era, until he passed away in 2008 in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
