Item description for Inside the Yellow Dress (New Issues Poetry & Prose) by Mary Ann Samyn...

The dress of Inside the Yellow Dress is both the clothing of childhood, of girlhood in particular, and the garment of language we all put on. And like clothing, the poems are cut as though from cloth: here an armhole, here a sleeve, a cuff, and, finally, space where a body might go. Formally, the poems enact this interest in both fabric and lyric as they move across the page: the mind at work, language as desire and restraint, as loss and memory, as frontier. The page itself as the physical place where language lives. In Samyn's poems white space is not a surrender, but acknowledgment that this is space otherwise occupied. To be inside the dress is not simply to be wearing it; rather as the poems say, assert: I live here, within the play and hush of language.

Reviews - What do customers think about Inside the Yellow Dress (New Issues Poetry & Prose)?

Amazing  Jul 25, 2003
"Inside the Yellow Dress" is a book filled with all the innate emotions of humankind. Whether it be Sadness, Anger, Disgust, Fear, Interest, Surprise, or Happiness ... the reader undergoes a catharsis with every poem. A wonderful book I would suggest to anyone.
Poet to Watch  Oct 11, 2002
Inside the Yellow Dress is a wonderful collection. Samyn's control of language and sparseness spins a world of beauty. Samyn's excellently manipulates the structure of the poem on the page for the greatest effect of tension.

This book is also well-organized. Anyone putting together their first collection of poetry should look to Samyn for ideas on how to do it.

No one should be subdued to read this  Feb 9, 2002
Seriously, all I have to say is that this collection of "poetry" is mere ramblings...uncreative. The author is trying to sound deep, but is failing horribly...It is too "Angry Girl." The only thing that i liked about the book was the cover art.
