Review

in Melissa Kwasny’s tender, brilliantlydescribed encounters with the vegetable world we see . . . great depths of world andself knowledge. --Patricia Goedicke

In this collection of odes to the temperament and individualized character of weeds, flowers, herbs, and trees, Kwasny tills the terrain of human emotion and reveals with freshness and grit the bloom of discernment and hope.

0 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Donna D. Obermiller on April 9, 2006
Format: Paperback
I love the author's sensitivity regarding her inner world and nature around her, however; stuck in a post modern frame of mine myself in my writing much of the time-it is my hope that this book serves as a catharsis for the writer to achieve a greater sense of integegration towards a more succinct expression of her future experience in her later works. I doubt post modernism will be the last great expression of global literature within the next century. "I hope for her a springtime which brings forth the yellow thistle flowers into the sweet vibrance of its fiery sun."

From:Juan Ramon Jimenez' "Platero and I An Andalusan Elegy", April 1960
