Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are few poets out there who really go the distance it takes to write something edgy, something rock n' roll. Patti Smith achieves this with every phrase she utters. Seventh Heaven was such a great foreshadow at the future she had ahead of her long before she ever became a rock star. The most interesting aspect of this collection of poems could be her use of gender. In some poems like "Girl Trouble," she basically writes as a male. In others, she describes all the pains involved with being female.
Patti Smith is so in touch with icons that she creates perfect pictures of Marianne Faithfull, Edie Sedgwick and others through her poetry. This is a poetry book you can pick up and read over and over again. It haunts you and it stays with you. Patti Smith has been instrumental in creating a new type of poetry that is rock n' roll. Seventh Heaven is the perfect introduction to her writings and music.
