Product Description

Review

"A poet of immense talent ... her poems [show] a genuine care for other people." -- Susan Schwartz, Montreal Gazette

"Monkey Ranch shows a grown craft and worldview ... magnifying and focusing her bright gaze on all things intellectual and domestic into a mature, white-hot point." -- George Murray, The Globe and Mail

"A light thrum of wit runs through many of the poems, but at heart, Monkey Ranch is a wise, multi-faceted look at humanity" -- Barbara Carey, Toronto Star

By fredamans TOP 500 REVIEWER on Sept. 29 2015
Format: Paperback
I'm glad that poetry is an art of words and everyone who reads them interprets them differently. Some will like it, and some will not. With this selection, I fall into the latter category sadly. Most of the poems just didn't make any sense to me. I would often feel the flow and then part way through, would begin to get lost and wonder why the ease of the rose stopped.
The was literally one poem in the whole thing that I sort-of liked, Emily Bishop's Room. Even this one I felt it was unfinished. I guess in the end, it didn't really work for me either....
Since poetry is so widely interpreted, I hope my not liking it doesn't deter you if you are interested. You may think the complete opposite to me.

HASH(0xa41a6678) out of 5 stars The Best Kind of Poetry June 22 2013
By Nan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Julie Bruck's new collection is the best kind of poetry. It's intelligent and wise, but also fun. Meant for those who enjoy artfully crafted poems that reflect on the human experience, and also for those who want a good read. Highly recommended.
