My Star Rating:
“Ah, life- the thing that happens to us while we’re off somewhere else blowing on dandelions & wishing ourselves into the pages of our favorite fairy tales.”
A poetry collection divided into four different parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, & you. the princess, the damsel, & the queen piece together the life of the author in three stages, while you serves as a note to the reader & all of humankind. Explores life & all of its love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, & inspirations.
My Review: (Vague Spoilers)
This is a great poetry collection – though depressing for most of the time, it is eye opening.
The poems are interestingly formatted (I am a fan of free-verse) and easily understood, well written.
I liked the fairytale analogy theme that flowed through the book and it was organized well.
If you like poetry, members, or consider you’re self a feminist, I’d recommend this.
