    Oh, my goodnessPoetry I can love I read a lot of poetry and I feel all the time that it is hit or miss Some of it is so hard to wrap your head around Williams poetry is for the people I love it It is like that album where it isn t just one or two hits you can listen to, but every song has you saying, This is going to be the next one they put on the radio The next 1 Emily, watch outI might have a new love.

    The amazing ability of Tennessee Williams to turn a phrase prevails though his poetry dating from high school into his 60s An interesting study.

    For some reason I was surprised that Tennessee Williams wrote poetry The poetry is actually good no surprise there but somehow doesn t grab me the was Donald Hall or Mary Oliver or Auden do.

    As a big fan of Williams plays, I was curious to pick up this book of his poetry Overall, I wasn t extremely impressed but a few stuck with me quite a bit such as The Wine Drinkers and What s Next on The Agenda, Mr Williams and The Little Town Being fascinated with Williams life it was interesting to seewriting on his drinking habits, the psych ward, family issues, problems with insomnia, and his relationships with men and women.

  5. Craig Craig says:

    Historically interesting to fans of Williams and GLBT historians, these oh so frank poems lend insight into the man and the social s he dissected in his works Editorially, the section of verse from film and plays seems redundant to anyone other than an OCD completist The cover art by Brian Rea and the accompanying CD are nice additions to this volume.

    Really not the greatest poems ever written, but so much fun if you re a fan of Tennessee Plus, my edition came with a CD of the author HIMSELF reading a few of his poems which is so very cool

  8. Mary Paul Mary Paul says:

    Some of these were nice I was in a rush to finish this, though, not the best way to digest poetry Then again, it s sort of a mish mosh of his material.

    Tactile poetry.
