Impressive

Not everyone can boast of creating a new form of poetry; Marilyn Singer, however, did just that.  She has three books of “Reverso Poems,” which are poems that are read top to bottom and then bottom to top, changing nothing but punctuation.  It might sound slightly odd, but it’s kind of an amazing way to show two points of view, if the poet is skillful enough, and Singer is.  True, some poems are incredible while others are just interesting, but the fact that she makes them all work is phenomenal.  Two of her collections–Mirror Mirror and Follow Follow–use characters from nursery rhymes and fairy tales, while Echo Echo works off of Greek Myths (Arachne and Athena are one of my favorite pairings). If you love words, you’ll want to read all three books.
