Editorial Reviews

Review

Ben Berman's Figuring in the Figure offers a window intohis personal life. In reading the poems, we learn that Berman is a young father and that he is a wizard at word play, among other things. The poems are written in the terza rima form, [which] allows Berman to showcase his proficiency as a poet...I recommend that you read this book. It will make you think. - Elvis Alves, Compulsive Reader

Stand your ground and make thoughtful observations - carefully, and with aplomb. BenBerman repeatedly delivers on this not-so-easy dictum. - Foreword Reviews

Berman writes, "I want to live on the verge / of my ideas--all my beliefs set / in stone, stones waiting to be turned over." This fine collection demonstrates the coiled potential that exists when one occupies that state, engaged in life and language as a unified process of discovery. Andrew-BodeLang, Literary Mama

Ben manages to capture a father's doubts and fears in anoften humorous way, as well as the joys and little victories that we enjoy whenwe get fatherhood right (sometimes by accident, sometimes by design), but healso nimbly brings each poem to a conclusion that carries weight andpurpose. - Jim McKenzie, Everythingfor Dads
