Some of the best poems I have ever read! Aug 25, 2005
This book is, in my humble opinion, worthy of a Pulitzer. There is so much BAD writing out there, and these poems are a benediction -- nuanced, so perfectly crafted in their lovliness, that they are near perfect examples of some of the best poetry being written today. This writer knows her stuff -- these poems are smart, savy, tender and in many places, elegant and wise. Buy this book, and live more richly!!!
"Six" is a Ten! Aug 19, 2005
I thoroughly enjoyed Eve Wood's book of poems entitled "Six". "Six" was written based on the historic six wives of Henry VIII. Being familiar with the story and quite fascinated by it, I thought her use of history as a framework for her poems was very interesting. The poetry revealed a more intimate and personal story of the women and were some of the most beautiful poems I have ever read.
