bookshelves: poetry, booksofthepast
Recommended for: anyone who has ever been in love with the wrong person

Could Anne Sexton's poetry BE any sadder? I suppose it could, and therein lies the genius of it. It straddles the boundaries of grief and joy with brilliance. I love this book and the notion that love poems can be grim and full of adulterous desires. Anne Sexton, I wish you'd written a poem about me.
