Beautiful mixture of brutality and hope
These poems are bursting with a beautiful and unusual mixture of brutality and hope. There is an invulnerable face most commonly evident in these poems, yet that face has a vulnerable streak that is all the more touching when I catch it. One might call these confessional poems, but that would seem too whispy, too light. It seems more that these poems follow you down the street while you try to keep your eyes forward, pretending that you notice nothing, while the poems holler obscenities and exclamations at you. Kate Gale's poetry has a force and style all its own. They fascinate.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
