readable, very interesting, very personal, but at the same time,
she has a beautiful way of looking at things. Her book made me
associate so many things, and I have a better understanding of
poetry because of it. I even got out an old textbook from my
son's school ("Introduction To the Poem," by Robert W. Boynton
and Maynard Mack - Hayden Book Co.) to learn more about
poetry. I like the way this young woman in a very modern way
has shared something personal without making it difficult,
without a lot of symbols and hidden meanings, to convey her
deep feelings. Subtle, but right out there. This is a brave book.
Her poems are rare and beautiful gems like the poems of Emily Dickinson. We find concise clarity of expression and a wealth of well-formed ideas, which offer a comprehensive report on tenderness and responsibility, accuracy and illusion, and the vast perversion of language in the 21st century, where our limited vocabulary and instant digital delivery make worthwhile communication nearly impossible. She may compose poems on a laptop, but Ms. Hagood's ideas are hand-written, borne on her sensual tongue and lips, tactile, primal, personal, and above all, poetic.
