It was different to read poetry from the characters point of view rather than the authors. The characters perspective provides a different view. In reading the poetry I felt as if I had been transported back in time and was actually there feeling the characters pain. The poems were inspiring yet sad at the same time. Excellent reading.

I don't like poetry. It's mostly boring and too dense or I am. So I did not want to read this book. My friend kept insisting that I read her copy. I took it to the bathroom and started reading it. I couldn't put it down. It wiped me out!! It's about this woman, a slave, who kills her kids. It's based on a true story. The story is chilling.
Some of the poems rhyme, one poem is a sestina and some other forms are here too, but really, the story will grab you. A must read.
