I recently discovered a new poet in Karin Gottshall. Her work is powerful and intense.
Many of her poems are dream-like or mythical and all of them delight the senses. Two
poems about childhood, The Raspberry Room and Inheritance are especially poignant.
It was a great treat to read this book of poems and it fascinated me. Recommend highly.
Gottshall's vivid descriptions without a wasted word invite re-reading, each time finding more than what you expected. A very strong group of poems.
Fantastic, powerful stuff. I got completely lost in these poems. Karin Gottshall makes me want to be a better writer.
Beautiful and evocative, Gottshall has a rare gift. A poet to watch!
