Augustine Sam × 4 Read

Free download Flashes of Emotion Augustine Sam × 4 Read review å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook × Augustine Sam Into a wide variety of topics from life and love to death and drudgery a collection that showcases Augustine Sam'. Poetry is arguably the genre of writing where reader responses are most likely to vary The large number of five star reviews of this collection may suggest that my rather different response may say as much about me as it does about the poems The positive reviews prompted me to stay with the collection rather longer than I might otherwise have done and to reach a poem that led me to re evaluateI was than half way through the collection when I reached The Greatest Gift an absolute gem It appears to be about a visit to Florence with a lover who though still young is terminally ill It beautifully balances the bittersweet pleasures of the here and now with the foreknowledge of what must soon happen while vividly evoking the beautiful city in which it is set The use of the changing seasons as a metaphor for the stages of life has many antecedents but the clich is cleverly used here the repetition of It is autumn in Florence giving a sonorous frame like the tolling of a passing bell for one who paradoxically seems doomed to die without reaching the autumn of her own lifeThere are a number of other pieces in the collection that also work very well I particularly enjoyed Prejudice about a white woman who gets on the wrong train and finds herself in an all black carriage an interesting reversal of the usual stereotypical race relations poemHowever I found many of the poems in the first half of the collection uite hard going I don t know what was going on in the author s life when he wrote them but they appear to me to be the work of a rather depressed man Although other people appear in the poems they leave little impression because they are always refracted through the author s self obsession That leaves us with far too many pages of the author s thoughts about himself unleavened by any trace of humour or much empathy with the lived experience of others I found the level of narcissism hard to take which may reflect a cultural difference The writing may have been therapeutic for the author but this British reviewer felt that what he really needed were a few cheerful mates to take him down the pub and stop him spending so much time writing gloomy poetry The poems that he did then write would perhaps have been betterOther reviews have praised the craftsmanship of the poems A large and diverse vocabulary gives the author a vivid palette with which to draw his word pictures there are certainly some arresting images and some of the poems are cleverly structured with intelligent use of repeated refrains and occasional rhymes to give a sense of rhythm and structure However there are also examples of tired language speaking volumes and of images that don t uite work visions swarmed like grape seeds and of statements that appear profound at first hearing but which become meaningless karmic rage his mind was their judgement seat or banal the you think you know him the less you really know him or just plain wrong when you subject them to a bit of thought the brave yearns to die not just wrong but dangerously so in this age of terrorists in love with martyrdomSome of the earliest poems are the weakest melodramas about cuckolded lovers killing themselves the wine writer or exacting gruesome revenge the human shock absorber They are untypical of much of the rest of the collection less subtle and less well crafted Placing them together at the start of the anthology certainly influenced me unfavourably and perhaps made me less receptive to what followedI love Coleridge s definition of the difference between poetry and prose prose words in their best order poetry the best words in their best order In his best pieces Sam s poems come close to this exacting ideal but there are too many pieces that read like careless streams of consciousness that should have been discarded or re worked before appearing here This is a large anthology for a work by a single poet It contains within it a slim volume of poems to treasure but the reader has to wade through a lot of others to reach them and I fear that many will not persevere which is a pity

Free download Flashes of Emotion Augustine Sam × 4 Read review å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook × Augustine Sam Flashes of Emotion is a book of romantic poetry a selection that allows the reader to tap into the poet's insights. This book made me realize many things but the first is that it s been too long since I ve allowed great poetry to grace the folds of my mind It does something to our subconscious Takes hold of us in powerful ways And Sam s work will have this effect on readers Poetry is often written without the type of consideration for flow that Sam uses in his creations I really found myself lost as I read through the passages And now after finishing this book I feel a huge surge of inspiration That s what great poetry does It inspires It makes it so you look at a sunset differently You look at everything differently With focus and of an introspective approach A few of the hundreds of great linesThe fury of his existence was like a veritable derision of life itself yet life clung to himShe lives in the water where fishermen abhor the fish Never encountering bigotry on her way for she loved to live on the fringes of paltry chauvinism

I m not a great reader of poetry but in my humble opinion this is an exceptional collection which I recommend to all readers especially poetry readers and lovers of romance The imagery is so fresh and vivid it paints pictures in the mind and as a reader I was able to recognise those fleeting emotions that are so hard to capture I started to note my favourites as I read but the list became too long I did particularly like the Hermitage and cough cough I feel a need to mention Sonnet to a Dame Over FiftyI m afraid I don t know the technical terms but the poems had the structure and rhythm of the poetry I was tortured by at school only with fresh modern sentiments I was able to relate to them in a way I couldn t during my school days I hope it is okay to include a short segment from one of them Any errors are my own as I was unable to copy paste from my kindle I stand in captivating solitude and watchAs life in its omnipotence swirls around meDaring its audience to decipher it magnificence and its doomIn the amphitheatre of lifeVery enjoyable a collection to savour and re visit
