By A Customer on November 20, 1999
Format: Paperback
The words of Maura Stanton roll off the pages and collect into one large colifferation of mystical and sprightly daydreams and brought into the reality of the wakefulness of the virtual world. One is torn between being lulled, much like a child, being sung nursery by his mother, and stirred by raucus lust-songs round the campfires of savages. One would like to meet this poet's works head-on, fearlessly, like a charging rhino!

Format: Paperback
Some of Ms. Stanton's poems were excellent. Her writing can be very touching, very moving. Ms. Stanton is able to create vivid images of events, and can transfer strong emotion to the reader. On the other hand, some items were a bit grim, a bit too dark for me. The collection is well worth reading.
