Review

"Metaphor becomes memory, the memory of a real material event currently retained in language." -- Electronic Poetry Review #4, Book Review by Lynn Domina, for Mary Ann Samyn's, Inside the Yellow Dress

"The splendors of this book are large—and also terrifying. An amazing book by one of our truly significant poets." -- Bin Ramke

By A Customer on October 11, 2002
Format: Paperback
Inside the Yellow Dress is a wonderful collection. Samyn's control of language and sparseness spins a world of beauty. Samyn's excellently manipulates the structure of the poem on the page for the greatest effect of tension.
This book is also well-organized. Anyone putting together their first collection of poetry should look to Samyn for ideas on how to do it.

"Inside the Yellow Dress" is a book filled with all the innate emotions of humankind. Whether it be Sadness, Anger, Disgust, Fear, Interest, Surprise, or Happiness ... the reader undergoes a catharsis with every poem. A wonderful book I would suggest to anyone.

This book was listed as a new book. It is clearly a used book. This was falsely advertised at best.

Seriously, all I have to say is that this collection of "poetry" is mere ramblings...uncreative. The author is trying to sound deep, but is failing horribly...It is too "Angry Girl." The only thing that i liked about the book was the cover art.
