really liked it
bookshelves: first-reads
Read from May 11 to June 08, 2012

I won this book from Goodreads first-reads. I entered because my son enjoys and writes poetry and I thought he would like it. I read it because I won it and want to give an honest review. Not being a poetry reader, or more importantly, not being a writer of poetry, I don't feel qualified to review it; I can only say how I liked it. For the most part I liked it very much. There were some poems that didn't resonate with me, but there were others that I liked so much I read them over and over again. I loved seeing the foreign poems in the original and I really loved the historical notes which accompanied the Japanese poems. I also liked the information that accompanied some of the other foreign language poems. Some poems made me tear up, and others made me smile. So although I wouldn't have chosen this book for myself, it has opened me up to reading more poetry in the future, and for that I thank you Blue Flute.

I first thought that I would read the book as fast as I could so I could review it, But once I started I decided to savor it; reading a few poems at a time so that I may better appreciate them."
