A delight! Elyse Hart has taken an intriguing concept and made it into a fantastic, wonderful, marvelous poetry and photo book. I received an ARC copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
In 29 poems she paints lyrical pictures of 29 people based on four photographs. The poems are each unique, speaking with a voice that matches the person one can imagine from the photographs.
Is it a true representation? I will never know but Elyse’s artistry makes me, as the reader, think I know them, which, in my mind, is even better!
The pictures shared by the 29 “subjects” are stunning in and of themselves, but it is the poetry that weaves the story. Connects the pictures to the person. Connects the people to each other. Connects the reader to them all.
Poems for Squares will be available March 15 and is highly recommended.
