Three Women: A Poetic Triptych and Selected Poems by Emma Eden Ramos, published by Heavy Hands Ink this year (it is eligible for the Indie Lit Awards), is primarily a series of poems about British-American psychotherapist Annette, her daughter Julia, and a Croatian immigrant, Milena. Ramos uses the idea of the Triptych beautifully here, in which the poems about or told from Julia and Milena’s points of view are hinged on the poems told from Annette’s point of view. Moreover, the poems from Julia...more

I was approached by Emma Eden Ramos with regard to her chapbook and asked if I’d like to review it, of course I’d never say no! I’ve not read any poetry for quite awhile so it was refreshing to get the chance to give it a go.
In Three Women we’re presented with three different stories told in three parts, all of which seem to have some connection to each other, most prominently in their depiction of womanhood. The first section (Introductions) gives the reader a short introductory view of the thr...more

I found this for free online. I will be purchasing a copy, however. This short book begins with a three part narrative that is based around the concept of the 'triptych.' I don't know is this author has studied art history but what she's done is capture the idea of a three part narrative painting through beautiful poetry. The 'Triptych' is perfectly symmetrical. There are three parts: Introductions, Impressions and Connections. There are three characters: Milena, Annette and Julia. The first two...more

It’s not often I read poetry, but when I was asked to review this, I was intrigued, and I thought I’d go for it. Firstly, I have to admit, I had no idea what a ‘Triptych’ was, and I figured that it was as good a starting point as any, so I looked it up. Basically, a triptych is a work of art which is split into three pieces, often with the centre piece being the largest. I have to admit, this intrigued me even more, and let me tell you, this is definitely a work of art.

The first fold of this is...more

The poems in this chapbook, a small book of verse, deal mostly with family tragedies that affect three women - Annette, a psychotherapist, and her daughter Julia, and a Croatian immigrant, Milena. The poems about them compose the Triptych of the chapbook's title. The poems are moving, each woman revealing herself and her history in her words, reflecting on the tragedy of their stories.

A unique way of telling the story of 3 women and how they connect in the end. Usually I prefer verse poetry, but this story was properly fitted with the prose Emma chose.
I really enjoyed the 3 women, Annette, Julia and Milena, though I appreciate Milena's no-bullshit attitude most.
Definitely a quick read, but a good one.

I really liked this, not something I would normally read but I was really pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it.
