“On A Poetic Life”: Essays in Rhyme

Featured Book Review: “On A Poetic Life”: Essays in Rhyme
Mr. Arnold P. Abbott (Author)


Arnold Abbott’s book, On A Poetic Life: Biographic Essays in Rhyme features almost episodic short stories within the artfully written poems presented. Eloquent and extremely profound, the author often uses more light hearted imagery to push forth what he is trying to say, yet at other times pulls no punches and instead tells the concept quite bluntly. On A Poetic Life is a very personal work, yet it speaks to generations of readers. Those interested in politics, current events, human rights activists, history and civil rights should pick this book up for a read. Sincere, intelligent, thought provoking and unapologetic, Abbott still manages to delicately put some of the harsher concepts of the world onto paper.

Poetry is being used here in a brilliant way, for as a medium, it is not so overbearing or droning a read as the average book on the same material might be. It keeps the concepts easy to digest and flowing, while allowing the reader plenty of space to put in a bookmark without feeling disjointed upon picking it up again later. As much as the author speaks of the darker aspects of this country and the misery these things have wrought, it is a hopeful and positive work. The author gives a thoughtful look at ways to better the life of anyone who reads it, and gives suggestions to better the lives those people will then affect. This work will make an excellent conversation starter and guide on even the most difficult of political subjects. Teachers, both of History and English may think of having this in their personal libraries or on shelves at school. Arnold P. Abbott’s On A Poetic Life: Biographic Essays in Rhyme features stories and general life advice, as well as articulately voicing a well versed frustration on the current state of the world, and how to fix it.

I Love Life: illeisms and about a girl (i LL Huvall)

I Love Life: illeisms and about a girl
i LL Huvall (Author)

Some of the pieces contained within I Love Life: illesims and About a Girl are like slam poetry, demanding to be read aloud in coffee shops in heavy tones. Others are soft notes of love for tender moments between lovers. Every poem keeps so perfectly within itself and it’s own context, never bleeding off or confusing the point. The ebb and flow of the prose keeps the beat easily, without effort from the audience to pick apart or figure out how to read them. The writing does the work for the reader in the comprehension aspect, while leaving very deep concepts for the audience to take with them. Therefore, there are no distractions in this book, because the author writes so fluidly and so well.The only over arching theme in this tome is that of life itself. These poems are a tribute to all aspects, even heartbreak.

The author finds beauty in every crack and finds purpose in every statement. A few of the poems are more political or bring big questions into play for the reader to ponder. Tomorrow and 21st Century are both examples of hard hitting and truthful sentiments. Intelligent and thought provoking, these and other works about society as a whole sit side by side very sparse, simple pieces which aim and succeed at touching the soul, regardless of gender or background. Those more personal poems are specific and yet universal. Some tell whole stories, while others tell snippets, an all convey an understanding of complex emotions. The poem Show Me is a wonderful example of the latter. Say Ladies, which sits on the same page, is an example of the author’s way of showing a complete scene with all the important characters involved, in a small space. Nothing is crammed, and yet everything fits. I Love Life: illeisms and About a girl is a beautiful book of poetry and prose for any young adult or older reader.
