2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Lindsay Shapiro on June 27, 2010
Format: Paperback
David Shapiro says: Lynda Stahl's poetry is intelligent, fresh, triple positive. She findsa the world beautiful,
and as Fairfield Porter said, if one doesn't find the world interesting and beautiful, why paint it?
She isn';t a waxworks poet or a theoretical drone. She is lively, fresh, surprising and maculate.
She sees the strangest as familiar and the familiar is deranged, She is a real poets
with the real tears that Baudelaire put inside himself. She has taken the ride from and to Cythera.
She has come up with a poetry which is wise, not pedantic. And it is no contradiction to say she is a very strong poet who has a taste for what used to be called "shared vulnerability."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jayne Stahl's poems skillfully catch the deep faults and powerful strengths of our culture. By using a first-person narrator, she brings us into her poems where we find ourselves in an impersonal, public world as in poems like "On Waite Street" and "USA donuts,"or in an intimate, private world, as in "a fist of light" and "In Another Life". Her ability to open up the short personal lyric to the impersonal world beyond it is a major achievement.
