it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry, love-the-cover, 5-stars, women-writers
Recommended for: Men and Women
Read in January, 2004

I originally gave this four stars because Anne Sexton is far from perfect and there are poems of hers (esp. Transformations) that I don't like that much but then again, when she's on, it's pretty much as close as I'm ever going to come to smoking crack. Really, I love how she can pile on the similes as if they were college students piling into a phone booth.
