really liked it
bookshelves: first-reads, poetry
Read from September 20 to 21, 2010

I won this book through the First Reads contest.

I finally received my copy of Ladders in July almost 4 months after I had initially won.

First off, I love poems. Reading Ladders in July, I was mostly confused in the beginning. I reread the first 20 or so poems 3-4 times and I still had no idea what in the world was going on. But then I arrived at the poem Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv is an amazing poem. As is Terminal, Last Stage, Poets & Peace, An Ecological Note and A Made Thing. My favorite was A Made Thing and I would have bought this book just for that poem. It is definately something I will read again because now I'm determined to analyze those first poems.
