My book asks us all to reconsider what we think is normal as it poses spiritual questions in the guise of the everyday, the normal; these questions demand some thought.

Growing up, Jaclyn Maria Fowler always had strange coincidences with Irish poet, W.B. Yeats. Not a fan of poetry, she pushed the incidences aside. However, when Fowler was studying for her masters in creative writing, she chose to concentrate on Irish literature for the academic component and was encouraged to connect to the poetry of Yeats. She did, and from this connection to Yeats and his poetry, she was inspired to write “It is Myself That I Remake.”
This book is about the impossible: incarnation, reincarnation, love and the transcendence of poetry. Using the esoteric beliefs and poetry of Yeats, “It Is Myself That I Remake” casts a new look at the continuum between life and death, between consciousness and living, between the here and the hereafter.
Throughout the book, there is a discussion among the characters about how incarnation can be hidden in plain view from the public. For instance, the main character, Sophie O’Connor, writes a memoir of her time with reincarnated Yeats, and calls it fiction. Thus, built into “It Is Myself That I Remake” is the unsettling thought that the book is not fiction, but somehow truth.
“I wrote ‘It is Myself that I Remake’ to help quiet the intensity of a lost love, a feeling provoked by the whisperings of a poet that have always filled my mind,” said Fowler. “It is a love letter to a man who bent words to his own will, his own sensitives and emotions, his own spiritual beliefs. My book asks us all to reconsider what we think is normal as it poses spiritual questions in the guise of the everyday, the normal; these questions demand some thought.”
