The emotional display that all of these poems show is magical! The imagery had me feeling like I was witnessing the events as they were told. The darkness felt heavy and the tone was portrayed brilliantly! I'm fascinated by this book of poetry.
I loved Shanan's first collection, but Pretty Marrow amazingly advances past it, even the poems it shares with The Red Riding Hood Paper have been woven into a tighter whole. I'm have been very lucky to be her student, and impatiently await her next collection.
