Pages of perfect, beautiful words
on 16 August 2015
Grace is one of the best collections of poetry I’ve read in a long time. I thought every poem was great. I loved the language and the imagery. The poet uses simple but beautiful language. In every poem, I had a perfect picture in my head of what the poet was trying to say. Interestingly enough, I think this collection would be great in audio. I could easily go to a beach, lie back, listen to these poems on my MP3 player and just drift away. Grace offers plenty of examples of what a great poem should be – the best words in the best order. The language used is simple, direct and straight to the point. Morgan doesn’t use puns or tricks or gimmicks or complex structures, just pages and pages of beautiful and perfect words. My personal favourites were The Nature of Things, The Edge of Something, As I Walked Out, What Happens While We Are Sleeping and Spare Room in Summer. I can’t recommend this brilliant collection enough.
