    ⭐ 375 5 ⭐Altogether an eerie beautiful and haunting collection of poems and prose from one of the world's most iconic writers The hand on your shoulder The almost hand Poetry coming to claim you What am I supposed to say? I mean c’mon it’s Margaret Atwood She’s a literary icon While some of the poems weren’t to my taste let’s be honest it was great writing but some of those poems were the weirdest things I’ve ever read 😂 One of them is called “Double Entry Slug Sex”Yeah Anyway overall every bit of poem and prose was well written and compelling Atwood takes the simplest pleasures or heartbreaks that life has to offer and expands on them spinning them into something beautiful in her legendary style Big thank you to Netgalley Ecco for sending me a review copy of this book Note Any uotes referenced in this review may or may not be subject to change in the finished copy of the book

    Many of the poems contained in this volume have been previously published in journals and anthologies proving that Margaret Atwood in addition to her other literary strengths has been recognized for her poetry In addition to these there have been several books of poetry since early in her career Like many these poems present personal insight focusing on inner life as well as ruminations on the cruelty and beauty of nature Lovely

    Many years ago when I was in college I enjoyed reading poetry but in the years since I've read very little poetry This book has changed my mind I loved it Like with any collection some poems were just ok but the majority of these were fantastic and I really enjoyed reading them Most of the poems are short and Atwood has chosen every word carefully to help not only the cadence of the poem but importantly the underlying theme Some of the poems made me smile and some of them made me cry but most of them made me think and feel I was gifted this book in ebook format but plan to buy a copy in hardcover so that I can keep it on my bookshelf and read some of the poems over and over

    Margaret Atwood's new book of poems is just as amazing as her work in fiction and reminds us that she is as much a poet as talented novelist Her simple lines are steeped in meaning and paint a hauntingly fresh view of realityIn Dearly Atwood's first collection of poetry in over a decade she touches on a variety of themes from love and loss to the passage of time Some of my favorite verses brought up themes of memory and time something that Atwood often includes in her writing Her new poetry is as introspective and personal as ever but this collection really resonated with me personally Atwood lost her husband last year after a long fight with dementia My grandmother was diagnosed with it and I can understand and relate to the pain of coping when someone you love is starting to forget who you areThe poems move through the phases of life like moon phases progressing in parts like maiden to croneThe very first poem Late Poems seems to set the tone for the collection with a reminder It is never too late You may not be able to change the past but it is never too late to learn from the past Nothing is meaningless and it is never too lateSome poems offer haunting warningsWere things good then?Yes They were goodDid you know they were good?No because I was worryingor maybe hungry or asleep Oh beware Beware of losing yourself We must make good memories and not get mired down in worry and laziness Appreciate where you are now but know that you will not always be where you are now We don't know the good ol' days until they are over so make them last with the ones you loveSome poems pose uestions to the reader like an existential personality uizIf birds are human soulsWhat bird are you?orIf you were a songWhat song would you be?But my favorite lines were the lines on memory and time In Dream the speaker makes clear comparisons between aging to the seasons you are young and it is summer becomes suddenly I'm older and it is winter There are so many beautiful poems about the struggle of aging fading and forgetting Letting go is difficult but inevitable and these poems serve as a sort of coping mechanism for dealing with lossThe clock ticks and the day shrivelsDusk sifts down on usHow long should I stay?The language Atwood uses to express her losses is simple and straightforward and that simplicity is what I enjoy most about her verses  uick but effective Atwood’s poignant poems keep readers flipping through pages getting lost in languageBooks of poetry should be regarded as of the most readable genre of our time Reader’s attention spans are shorter than they have ever been before; the average person typically will read snippets of text on social media and advertisements throughout the day but will not sit to read a whole book Technology is changing our reading habits and poetry offers a reading experience that imitates the way we read today Short and simple verses mimic how we read snippets of literature throughout the day like on Instagram or Twitter This is the type of book that can be read in a day and will leave readers returning to it forever

    Younger readers may be surprised to find the Margaret Atwood whom many know for The Handmaid's Tale and her speculative fiction trilogy starting with Oryx Crake began her writing career as a poet in 1961 with her collection Double Persephone While some may be put off by the poetry designation fear not gentle reader fear not The Atwood readers know from her fiction is still there shining through although since poetry tends toward compact impressions even so The Atwood that shines through the fiction the irony and wicked wit the bare bones language that refuses to dress up and put on airs to make its point she is there Having lost her longtime partner Graeme Gibson in September 2019 this collection is infused with both his presence and as he had had vascular dementia his fading and flickering absences Their life together however is present as well particularly their experiences as environmental conservation advocates and bird watchers Her close observation of the natural world works it's way into her poetry Ears are superfluousWhat are they forthose alien pink flaps?Skull fungusFear not it's not all doom and gloom and vanishing wetlands There are also sidesteps into the speculative fiction universe with aliens and vampires and of course zombies A fantastic collection by turns poignant amusing and wry much like the author Recommended

    A different take on story telling it is a pleasure to be treated to fiction writers works of poetry Margaret Atwood's new collection begins with a glance back at her life losses and the things we collect throughout a lifetime Moving on from human life she addresses nature with both humor and tenderness as in Cicadas her recognition of the orchestra we are treated to in the heat of the summer The 8 part Songs for Murdered Sisters a song cycle written for baritone Joshua Hopkins in honor of his murdered sister is in your face real and tragic What I appreciate in this collection is how Ms Atwood moves from aging and life's endings to her gratefulness to life's treasures
