One thought on “Monster: Poems

  1. Powerful and moving I received an ARC from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.As this is not my first poetry book mainly centered on feminism, this book was able to give out a whole new shade to the ever growing predicament that women face today This poetry book was so powerful and it was really able to send its message across, loud and clear However, her way of putting everything into verse painted a very gloomy picture of how women is viewed today, I am not going to claim that I am a [...]


  2. I came at the whole Plath Hughes thing in an entirely ass backwards manner My first exposure to Plath was via reading about how people blame Ted Hughes for her suicide Which means I had read chunks of Arraignment before I ever read any Plath, let alone any Hughes Needless to say, I kinda want to make a field trip to Hughes grave to dig up his bones and smash them into powder now The whole book manages to be at least as powerful as Arraignment , it s howl after howl of hardcore militant feminist [...]


  3. I received a free copy courtesy of Open Road Integrated Media via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewI love poetry I can t really pinpoint what it is about this form of writing that transcends fictional writing but it s something special Oddly because usually it s the synopsis of the book that pulls me in the cover of this book is what grabbed my attention and really made me want to read it, the title was pretty eye catching as well To be quite honest I didn t understand what the heck I w [...]


  4. i don t remember why i got this book, but i probably picked it up in the cheap books pile at the santa cruz library and i m SURE i paid the requisite 25 cents for it definitely it s my first real foray into feminist poetry, and though it takes itself VERY seriously, there are quite a few flashes of intense brilliance that reveal a plight that still remains for a lot of women today this isn t just feminist poetry, it s poetry about relations between a woman and a man, a woman and a society she s [...]


  5. An Advanced Reading Copy of Monster by Robin Morgan is generously provided to me via NetGalley in exchange of honest review.I rarely read poem, let alone poetry book like this one But it s safe to say that I enjoyed it Sure there are than one poems that gave me chills because of how deep and scary the lines are, but overall I gave a four shining stars to this book Not sure if I want to read another poetry book anytime soon, but hey, if it s good and free then why not


  6. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review, and really enjoyed it The poems flow nicely from one to another and the overall arc of the book kept me locked in from the first poem I read it once all in one sitting and then again slowly picking my way through my favorite bits I found the voice particularly engaging, and as poetry goes very accessible to most readers I really like this as an exploration of sexuality, gender, and identity I hope to sample it in future classes I [...]


  7. Overall it was a typical poetry collection Nothing all that new or thrilling to me as I am not a fan of poetry, but there were some poems I read a dozen times score I could move on because they were sheer perfection I suggest this slim collection of peons just for those perfect poems, but reading the entire collection is also rewarding in itself.


  8. This little volume was, I think, supposed to be published by Penguin They dropped it, and hence it was picked up randomly in Australia can t remember by who.I was a little apprehensive about reading this initially, but Morgan s poems are actually quite strong and truthful and open.


  9. Morgan is an important feminist political activist She is not, however, a poet worth reading by any stretch of the imagination Not all feminist poetry is good poetry and this is pretty clear evidence of that.
