5.0 su 5 stelle AN EXCELLENT COLLECTION! 16 novembre 2013
Di BonMot - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
A Girl Goes into the Woods explores the was/ is/ might be. This volume is very much Lyn Lifshin...translating things we feel but cannot articulate, we are exposed...our hands held by the author. In Ms. Lifshin's distinctive style, this collection takes the reader to every emotional corner. The reader will discover and rediscover the real and the imagined. A Girl Goes into the Woods shows Ms. Lifshin's mastery; her art and artifice will surprise no one and delight everyone.

I feel like I have been given insight into the soul of the poet and can relate on many levels. Love the family dynamics and how it reaches out to the rest of the poet's life.

Review of A Girl Goes Into the Woods Lyn Lifshin
NYQ Books

Reading "A Girl Goes into the Woods," Lyn Lifshin’s latest collection, is a walk through some of her richest work. This selection contains many poems published earlier, (and some this reviewer has not seen) with groups from many periods of her writing life. Lifshin covers the full gamut of human experience and emotion. She is able to permeate lives, dip in and out of recorded history, pull us from lover to lover, (some imagined, some longed for,) take us from the depths of personal loss, (mother, cats, horses, lovers, even geese frozen in a pond) to tears of laughter with a “Condom Chain Letter.” Lifshin says in the poem, “Drifting:” things I have and/don’t have/come from this/moving between/people like/smoke. And Lifshin does move like smoke as she travels without physically traveling, looking and seeing with a profound “inner eye.” These poems move through her personal history and then the history of the world. The pain of adolescence when she was overweight and Jewish in a time of intolerance in a small town, the humiliation of being brilliant and an outcast are threads throughout her work. Yet with all this pathos and struggle there is a dry wit that comes to the surface time and time again, (“In Spite of His Dangling Pronoun”) and even outright erotica, (“Nice.”) And there is the raw emotion that practically sizzles, even when using metaphors of glass and ice. I didn’t understand/what comes from/living with a man who/can’t get inside/I opened and the/cracks filled/with ice. (“Glass”) Poems about Lifshin’s grandparents escaping from a pogrom in Russia vividly capture the stories, yet are told as though dreamt, in fragments of imagined memory. If my grandmother would have written a postcard to Odessa/she would write her/name in salt, salt/and mist an SOS/from the ship sea/wind slaps with night/water…(“If My Grandmother Would Have Written a Postcard to Odessa”) The chapter entitled “Looking for Lost Voices” is this reviewer’s favorite section, containing some of the poet’s “Sleeping with…” (various poets) poems and “Georgia O’Keefe”, a spare portrait that perfectly captures the flavor of the artist’s paintings: a black iris/I wanted the black/to make you feel/what I was/feeling. This chapter also contains three “Woman in Love with Maps” poems, which are Lifshin’s wry and surreal take on cartography. She aches for a /country in the shape of a fly-blue fish washed with lemon,/something she can date with one glance, something from/the fifteenth century. Not what folds up, can split along/the crease, wants what she can lie smooth in a locked flat drawer/or roll up to have there in the dark just for her (“The Woman in Love with Maps”) These woman/map poems are pure Lifshin genius, making us look at the world as though we were flying out from it into a far more whimsical one. She doesn’t want/longitudes and /latitudes, favors/roads mutable as/a bracelet made/of sand… Lifshin can take the viewpoint of a block of cheese, a maiden frozen for 500 years, a lover of Lorca and Dylan Thomas; she can be a jazz singer, Barbie, a mad woman and she enters the world of magical, mystical geese. It is true that we will forever see the real Lifshin in her mini skirt, as thin as a shadow, long hair flying. But it is her depth of understanding and sly humor that keep me coming back for more.

5.0 su 5 stelle A poet's poet 23 febbraio 2014
Di Jules Nyquist - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Lyn Lifshin is a big girl poet in a little girl's pajamas, tangled wild hair waking up in the woods. She's a poet's poet and I'm pulled into her selected poems "A Girl Goes Into the Woods" as her new best friend to experience her stories. We traipse through exposed branches, bearing a few scratches to follow her path to the buried secrets, anticipated storms, impulsive lovers, uncovered dead cousins, old diaries buried under the dirt, and Mother's lost voice. These are my stories too, and as a poet I write my own poems after reading hers, a high compliment for this wide-ranging collection of Lifshin's work. These are poems about other poets, about Barbie, and about war. She is not just a women's poet, she is a poet for everyone who wants to touch the real. Lifshin is not afraid to touch the dark, "startling (us) as coming upon your reflection in a mirror."

5.0 su 5 stelle This book is a MUST HAVE For Lifshin Fans! 14 marzo 2014
Di Laura Stamps, Copywriter - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
If you’re a fan of Lyn Lifshin’s tight, engaging poetry, this BIG beautiful book is a must. It is. As I read one wonderfully crafted poem after another, I was immediately reminded of the quality of my favorite Lifshin volume, “Before It’s Light.”

It has been many years since John Martin’s Black Sparrow Press was passed to David R. Godine. I don’t think any of us will ever forget those big, thick Black Sparrow volumes of small press poetry. Incredible books from an incredible press.

Since then Lifshin’s two Black Sparrow collections, “Before It’s Light” and “Cold Comfort,” have become classics in the realm of small press literary poetry. Now there is a third. This book is a sumptuous banquet of delights: 385 pages of poetry from eight of her bestselling and most beloved books.

Does it get any better than that? I think not. If you’re a Lifshin fan this one belongs in your collection. It does. It’s Lifshin at her best.
