    Beautiful, Unique and Thought-Provoking use of Language

    As I read through Like the Heart, the World, I was intrigued by the uniqueness and depth of Cohen's words. She has created surprising word combinations such as "the metal taste of alone" that made me stop and contemplate their meanings. I love that her poems are like a maze of language; fresh and thought-provoking. The book is separated into three sections according to places that Cohen has lived and reflects her experiences in those cities. Through these sections, she intertwines the sensory world around us with the deep emotions that we feel inside. As the sections progress we see Cohen open up, giving us more of her, allowing us a bigger glimpse into the depths of her mind. Her poetry becomes more relaxed and longer signifying her growth as she moves through the different phases of her life. In the end, we see that she is comfortable where she is now, that she can sit within the pain, loss, and triumph of life and convey it all to us magnificently.

    Open, Poignant

    I read this book in one sitting, something I've never done with a poetry title. Cohen doesn't mince words - rather, she is one of those rare lyricists who makes every line count. I often paused mid-poem, amazed with a particular line or stanza, like this one from "Pretty Lady Can I Get a Smile?": <BR/><BR/><BR/>I'd like to change the way <BR/>you think about marriage. <BR/><BR/>Your geography is impressive. <BR/>Do you know where your heart is? <BR/><BR/><BR/>The emotional range from poem to poem is one of the strongest features of this title, showing a deep maturity through directness and empathy. The book is also broken up into sections according to where the author has lived at various stages of her life, something I really appreciated as it gave the book more thematic cohesiveness. I was slightly confused during some of the poems, but that's just this particular reader and something that didn't happen very often. It also means that one can get different things from a Cohen poem each time it's read, the mark of a strong author. Highly recommended.
