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.

On a recent writing excursion, I headed to Flagstaff for the day to do some research for my upcoming book. While there, I stopped at Steep for some tea and saw a used book store across the street. I poked my nose in, bought a book of poetry by William Blake and the Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, and though I overpaid a bit for her book I definitely got a deal on a pristine First Edition copy of Patti Smith's Seventh Heaven. The salesman called the store owner to price the book, then said it's priced upwards of $300 and couldn't take less than $40. Done! I said, and handed over my credit card. Looking at the prices here on Amazon I see I made the right choice. This illuminating book showcases her raw talent as a poet with the promise of greatness to come. Judging by her newest writings I'd say she made it.
