“Death Threats From British Petroleum” is both a commentary on today’s environmental issues and a stunning testament to the power of poetry to connect people in shared experience.

Life, love and loss are beautifully rendered in poetic form in “Death Threats From British Petroleum: & Life Beyond The Grave” (published by AuthorHouse). In this collection of original poems, Henry Wells Sullivan explores the problem of environmental destruction while celebrating the life and advocacy of his late wife, Gillian, who was an environmentalist.

In “Death Threats From British Petroleum,” Sullivan satirizes the oil industry, the mining industry, Wall Street banking and at public indifference toward its own predatory exploitation. But the poems end in a triumphant mood of eternal love, and an affectionate, sometimes whimsical celebration of his beloved wife’s memory, her circle of friends, and close family and loved ones.

“My wife was an ardent environmentalist,” the author says. “If she had lived, she would have been devastated by Deepwater Horizon. This book of poems is inspired by both disasters as a memorial to her in grieving her death.”

“Death Threats From British Petroleum” is both a commentary on today’s environmental issues and a stunning testament to the power of poetry to connect people in shared experience.

“I want readers to understand that love is immortal,” Sullivan says. “And I want them to learn the lessons of my wife’s lifelong striving to make a difference."
