Customer Review

on 13 May 2016
Poetry should be heard. This is true, but some poems read better than others, too. Eyes Like Lighthouses When the Boats Come Home is a collection of uncomplicatedly direct poetry. There's no reaching, no pretensions, no sense of style over substance. Often quite raw and sometimes delivering a stream of consciousness, Cobain clearly prizes a sense of the moment's authenticity over a meticulous editing process. The result is poetry that wastes no time polishing its technique, using the rhythmic rush and occasional loose rhyme to drive to the point: the feeling and the purpose. There's a beat revival sense to a lot of Eyes, which requires the reader to try the poems aloud.

A pleasure for people who prefer the natural and unconscious sorcery of modern poetry over the rigorous wizardry of more formal styles.
