Reviews - What do customers think about A Fiddle Pulled from the Throat of a Sparrow (New Issues Poetry & Prose)?
quite varied styles Mar 14, 2008
Gordon indulges in quite varied styles in the different sections of this book. One, the Right of Return, is perhaps the tightest. In that its poems seems to thread together into a coherent narrative. Across the poems, a story is being told. Though there is (deliberate?) ambiguity if you try to read them this way. But there is enough logical progression to make a whole part.
The 4 Allusive Fields section has 4 sonnets. These are also and very explicitly connected. But somehow, without quite the same sense of narrative or events unfolding of the Right of Return.
In both, the imagery is vivid and sometimes quite compelling to the mind's eye.
