Dearly: New Poems – Margaret Atwood

I have read fiction by Margaret Atwood. I have read short stories by Margaret Atwood. And now I have read poetry by Margaret Atwood.

This collection was very touching, in a painfull kind of way. Her poetry is very solid in my opinion, it made me think and then reread and then think again. I liked the themes this collection of poems discusses about, even if some of them are kind of dark and sad.

I don’t know exactly when each poem was written but still they have a very different feel from what I think when I think about poetry (especially contemporary) and that is something!

I also liked the poems that are divided in types of numbered “sections”that tell a story through small poems.

My favorite poems were:
Princess Clothing
Shadow
Coda: Song
The Dear Ones
Aflame
The Aliens Arrive
At the Translation Conference
Feather
Short Takes on Wolves
Table Settings
Mr. Lionheart
Invisible Man
Flatline
Dearly
