    Allegory as an art form....

    C.E Laine not only possesses a compelling command of language, but also makes perfect use of every silent pause found between the lines of her poems. Allegory is much like opening a letter from a friend you've been wishing to hear from for ages. There's a pure familiarity that becomes all wound up in a sense of renewed self-discovery when looking at pieces of life though her imaginative eyes. One can easily meet (or rediscover) their mother, brother, or locate a forgotten lover amid these pages. C.E's scope of theme is set on a wide range of vision, thus enhancing the freshness and intensity of the work as a whole. Poignant, clever, and daring are but a few words best suited to describe. You'll also notice this poet's words skills are every bit as effective whether the poem fills a page or merely runs a few lines deep. Also, another attractive feature is the way Allegory performs well for either male or female audiences, refusing to be tied down by a monotone perspective. If in search of a read that is far above average and well worth your time and attention, I highly recommend this publication. Allegory is to be remembered, as well as shared.

    That rarest of gifts.....

    This poet certainly has the rare gift of capturing a picture in the mind, and bringing it forth with enough detail to be clear, while not muddying the picture with too many details. I was most impressed by the breadth of styles the author is comfortable with, something for all moods and seasons. I am impatiently awaiting the next offering from C.E., and it should not disappoint!
