[ READ BOOK ] ☪ A Woman of Property ♵ MOBI eBook or Kindle ePUB free

Subtle and dark These poems have great heft, even heartier than what is shown in their frequently generous length I m happy to find a poet who values the long form, a rarity in this age of minimalism. Although her words are enchanting and easy to read, I m not very fond of long poems as it is very easy to lose track, especially when the verse and paragraph divisions are not natural.Besides, it is way to much expensive for the edition, a mid quality paperback although with a beautiful cover book with nothan 70 pages. Periodically I paused and thought surely I must give up writing now. This work is complex, leaving room for many rereads There s lots of thought provoking contemplation going on, the way each poem feels like a personal exploration, long and discursive.

Book A Woman of Property Author Robyn Schiff Publisher Penguin PoetsOne sentence summary The speaker s internal world intertwined and sometimes in opposition with the external world surrounding her.Thoughts I only enjoyed 5 poems out of this whole book because those five poems were the easiest to understand I like my poetry simple and unpretentious It seems like poetry is becoming like runway fashion where designers make ugly unwearable clothes and call it art Maybe in another life, I would pick this book up again and read it and havepatience but for now, I m into just understanding what I m reading A good read for people who are a lotpatient with chewing words. This collection of poetry features a collection of non rhyming poems, some of which stretch over a multiple of pages Topics include deer hunting, flu season, a chair, flowers, food and others I often love a long meditative poem, but some of these didn t have enough balls in the air to keep me attentive There were some lovely moments, but I found myself rushing through instead of simmering on the language of these rather colloquial poems There is some good work here, just not my favorite. 811.6 S333p 2016
