Rhyme or Reason: Narragansett Poetryby John Christian Hopkins
"Rhyme or Reason: Narragansett Poetry" is an eclectic collection of serious and humorous poems by John Christian Hopkins (Narragansett). In 2013, BHB published an expanded second edition to the chapbook. A deeply personal and touching collection, Hopkins has a heart the size of Texas. His work includes a poem about his relative Tarzan Brown, a famous marathon runner and offers some old family photos.
"I guess I've been a poet ever since I discovered that 'cat' rhymed with 'bat'," Hopkins said.
For Hopkins, "Rhyme or Reason" is a first foray into poetry. He generally focuses on historical fiction, he said. His other works include "The Adventures of the Pirate Prince of the Wampanoags: Carlomagno" and "Nacogdoches."
Author-poet-journalist John Christian Hopkins offers a touching collection of poetry with a bit of his Narragansett Rhode Island family history. It's an eclectic mix of poetry by a Native American author who likes to think off the reservation.
