Review: Atmospheric Embroidery

Atmospheric Embroidery Atmospheric Embroidery by Meena Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In this poetry collection, Meena Alexander doesn't shy away from some of the hardest images there are, including violence and death. But the poet writes in a way that does these images justice, putting context along with artistry.

These poems are also ones that focus just as much on sound as subject. I could easily image these being performed out loud and be just as enjoyable as reading them alone in your room, particularly the title poem of the collection.
