Poetry Book Reviews - World Class Poetry

I feel like Diane di Prima’s foreword does a disservice both to this book in particular and poetry in general. There is, as Rae said when she gave it to me, “a lot going on", but it is still just a poetry book, a darn good poetry book that happens to have different colored pages and illustrations and starts out as celebrity biographies of tragic women and then morphs half way through into a book about writing the book with autobiographical commentary, all of which are elements of poetry books previously reviewed here, but they are all done well, it all hangs together, and I found myself repeatedly thinking “wow, this is a cool book” between looking up biographies on Wikipedia as suggested in the foreword.
