Let’s be straight, I am far from been a professional “Book Reviewer” but with every poetry book I read and have read I will post a review, simply for writing practice and also to hopefully introduce new unread poetry books, good or bad to the readers. Comment, be critical, send me your reviews or simply enjoy the review and hopefully find a book you may never of heard of or read.

The Iliad by Homer
The Iliad by Homer Wed. May 02 2012: Translated by Stephen Mitchell 544pp
Stephen Mitchell’s magnificent new translation of the Iliad reminds us that there is always a new and different way to read and interpret the great classics, and that they need to be reinvigorated from generation to generation, just as we need to be reminded that they are, however venerated, above all stories: exciting, full of life and great characters, in short great entertainment, not just great monuments of culture or the Western canon

House Of Bees
house of bees by stephen murray poetry bookTue. Apr 03 2012: by Stephen Murray. 100pp
House of Bees announces the arrival of a brilliant and unique voice into the realm of contemporary Irish poetry. A beautiful, terrifying, and moving debut that wastes no time in bringing the reader on a Dantesque descent into the macabre-the gushing imagery and fluidity in dealing with such themes as domestic abuse, mental illness, love, and addiction. Shocking yet charming, cogent but humble, House of Bees is poetry at its merciless best.

Extravagaria by Pablo Neruda
Extravagaria by Pablo Neruda  Tue. Feb 14 2012: Translated by Alastair Reid. 304 pp
Extravagaria marks an important stage in Neruda’s progress as a poet. The book was written just after he had returned to Chile after many wanderings and moved to his beloved Isla Negra on the Pacific coast. These sixty-eight poems thus denote a resting point, a rediscovery of sea and land, and an “autumnal period” (as the poet himself called it). In this book, Neruda developed a lyric poetry decidedly more personal than his earlier work
