Product Description

Review

"Dimensions" is truly the key word in the book's title, as each piece focuses on a different aspect of love from a unique (and sometimes surprising) perspective. Yes, one of those aspects is the romantic relationship and its many nuances, but there is so much more - attraction, acceptance, desire, friendship, belonging, giving . . . living.

Each piece beautifully worded to stimulate the mind, touch the heart, and feed the spirit. -- Doug Heatherly, writer (January 23, 2009)

At a fundamental level, the collection explores the many dimensions of love and what it is to be human. Akesson travels through hopes and fears in the face of love, yet she also delves into existential questions that many readers will appreciate. She easily flows between asking, "Are we playing at something/or are we doing it for real?" and more figurative concepts like that of Chaos who "sometimes glares at the world/while smoking his cigar." There are many moments like these that grant depth to her work beyond the surface features of love.
... Ultimately Love's Thrilling Dimensions is an enjoyable float through well-crafted phrases, appealing cadence, and expressive emotion. Akesson shares truths about life and love in a way that reflects modern life and is embraceable by modern audiences. -- Feathered Quill Book Reviews (January 22, 2009)

What a wonderful book of poetry to touch the heart, deepen the spirit, and stir up the emotions! Joyce Akesson, gifted poet and extraordinaire, puts into words not many have the talent to achieve. Her writing is clear, profound, and creative, while at the same time poignant. -- Irene Watson for Reader Views (January 22, 2009) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
