Descrizione prodotto


The dreadlocks of polar bears; the atomized droplets of an underground waterfall; oranges as an offering to the dead; a purple hippopotamus wading pool in a strip club; hoar frost and aurora borealis and bail bondsmen and road kill: Joanne Merriam's inaugural collection of poetry catalogues morsels of experience. The Glaze from Breaking overflows with lovely, vivid poems about the aftermath of a breakup, and the redemptive power of travel, nature and love. Her language charged with verbal energy, Merriam has crafted a moving portrait of a woman who is saved by her close observation of the everyday wonders of the world.

This edition is a reprint of the 2005 Stride Books paperback edition.

I'm not a poet and for most of my life I've had a bit of a distant relationship with poetry, but I've been following Joanne Merriam for a long time. The print version of The Glaze for Breaking is one of the first (and one of the only) poetry books I own. I love it so much that I also own this e-edition.

I wish I could lure you in with literary speak and descriptions of her technique, but I know very little about such things. I do, however, know when something speaks to me, draws me in, and leaves me wanting more. Whether you're looking for a gentle read for the beach, an easy to love introduction to poetry, or an addition to your already extensive poetry colletion, I highly recommend The Glaze for Breaking.
5.0 su 5 stelle Outstanding Collection of Poetry 28 marzo 2012

Joanne Merriam's collection begins with prose poems rich in imagery. I was immediately captivated by this poet's use of sensuous details, details that allowed me to see, smell, and taste, as in, "somewhere the lingering juice of strawberries brings your tongue to your lips. . . red stains feather across your wet fingers, a pattern like the veins of leaves." The poet uses gardens as a motif throughout the collection, and with a painter's touch, calls them forth with their "frisky roses all nude and dizzy."

Another quality of this collection that drew my admiration is its variety. Prose poems are interspersed with free verse poems. The collection also alternates very short poems with long ones divided into sections. The poet uses numbers to poetic advantage, as in "Eight Ways to Think About Happiness" which ends with these lovely words: "Your hair smells of morning and dust. I like your tongue on mine and your terrible singing in my shower. You can stay." Section II's, ". . . calendar of dreams," is another poem divided into numbered parts, each part a reflection on one month of the year, an ambitious and tender gathering together of an entire year.

Time again makes its presence felt as the poet drifts in and out of remembered events. She recalls a former lover, returns to childhood, and ends in the present with a new lover. Occasionally, there is a narrative interlude; for example, in "With Every Step" the poet revisits the past, one year at a time. Once more, the drifting, flowing feeling is captured here as Merriam wisely breaks chronology. And isn't that the way memory really works?

The Glaze from Breaking is a beautifully structured collection with poems rich in imagery, a delicate emphasis on Time, and an underlying hint of story.
