There are some very good poems and poets in these collections. It is hard to even list all of my favorites. One stands out, however, Elizabeth Langemak's, An Apology. She has published no books of poetry on her own, however.

I strongly recommend to anyone interested in finding new poets to read or just wanting to read a really enjoyable book of poetry.

I'd put this book on my want-to-read list so long ago that I couldn't remember anything about why I had wanted it. But I was scrolling the list while putting together a book order and the cover caught my eye — so I finally ordered it to find out.

I still don't remember where I'd heard of this, but everything about the title and premise fo the collection is such a direct hit to my interests: humans have fucked up so badly that the cephalopods have taken over — and these poems are exhibits in a museum of how/why we lost the right to govern ourselves. Filled with a parent's anxiety about environmental destruction, police brutality, consumer capitalism, all the hurts and injustices in this world we bring our children into. It's also full of longing — for opportunities missed, for moments romanticized by nostalgia, for children to have all the good stuff, for there to be no tradeoffs.

I quite loved this.

The poems in Our Andromeda range from bizarre to tender. Most of the time I figure Shaughnessy is up to something and I can't always quite figure out what, which I like. I really enjoyed her embodied expression of motherhood, its joys, challenges, and fears, and her series on the Tarot cards produced some unexpected imagery.

Brenda Shaughnessy's collection is my first foray into her poetry. After reading primarily narrative poetry Shaughnessy's work came off as a bit too self-consciously academic but as I sat longer with the poems I appreciated her sense of intertextuality and playfulness with form and language. There's a lot of humor, depth, and care in this work and I'm sure it's one I will return to again soon.
