Delightful Poetry Collection
I enjoy and have written poetry myself. I don’t read contemporary poetry as often as I’d like, so I was intrigued when I saw this particular book show up on one of my favorite book review sites. I am so glad that I chose to review it. let me tell you why.
First, I like the format of the book. In the PDF version I received, each poem is allowed its own page or two, as required, with plenty of white space around it so you can just focus on the poem. These poems vary in length, structure, and creativity with punctuation and other language effects. Honestly, that is what I love about poetry. I think it is the most playful of the word arts but can also be the most serious in terms of the subject. I love the heightened effect of language that the sparseness of poetry evokes. And when poets can actually make us see their world and feel their experience even with the economy of language, it is a beautiful thing to behold. I found many such moments in these poems. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection, and if you enjoy contemporary poetry, I suggest you give it a try.
