The general theme of Elsewhere is one of poetry on travel and being a displaced poet stranger in a strange land type stuff I m way behind on my poetry reading and not nearly as educated in poetry as I am in fiction When I read a collection of poems I can appreciate the art and the imagery the turns of phrase and cunning language but as I whole I feel unable to give a thick definition on what is good and not good I do not know the different schools of thought the different eras of poetry and how some phases have faded and some have survived or been revived I just know what grips me and makes me want to reread reread reread aloud to friends lovers and family Those are the poems that must be doing something right This short collection is cut into six parts each part with one to three poems that exemplify the theme without giving anything away I will focus on the one poem in the entire collection that really sticks out Things I Didn t Know I Loved by Nazim Hikmet is a poem about travelling by train and a train of memories and feelings well up Written a year before his death it is a great reflection on things that Hikmet did not realize that he missed and loved This string of memories and regrets makes for emotions to well up and a choice to either blow them off or thinks about the things I the reader need to reflect on as well I enjoyed this collection even though I don t know much about poetry and my biggest complaint is that it is so short Clocking in at under 100 very sparse pages it feels like there could have been to this a broader spectrum or examples As it is Elsewhere is a collection that will be reread periodically
