it was amazing
Read in December, 2011

A true poet who truly knows how to capture and reveal humanistic emotions. Asking truly inquisitive questions and describing heartbreaking situations you are thrust into your own thoughts arising a wealth of emotions and unknown thoughts. The tender language allows you to enjoy, yet be horrified at the violence and gentleness of the realistic nature of the situations described becoming one with the many narrator(s) questioning your function as a human and your own actions. In a way, King function becomes oddly similar to T.S. Eliot in his plight to save the modern world using dualities that truly mimic the hardships of life. Travel within the book and visit times everyone will eventually experience such as death, birth, marriage, sex, love, hatred and find new meaning within these symbolic areas. Find a new interest in the mundane, and live life! If you are a virgin to Amy King’s work be prepared to explore and find yourself within her many poems and lessons concerning the world. Life may be painful, but it can be just as enjoyable and end your life on note of love. Read to find a glorious message in this true “opera of peace.” 5/5 stars!
