Great poetry!

by poetrystudent on Nov 29, 2007

This book by the current Poet Laureate of the United States is a joy to read. Punctuated by unexpected images and sounds, I was also particularly taken with the prosy style of the poems and the quality of the sound of the words. If you want to try poetry (or try it again) but you think poetry has to rhyme and rhyme is too old fashioned or trite, try this book -- this is the modern poetry. As a poetry student, I am still marveling at Simic's use of plosives, frictives, nasals and liquids -- the consonants, not to mention the vowels. "My mother was a braid of black smoke..." Simply great!
