Ciento” by Lorena Dee Cervantes

Bob Book Reviews Leave a Comment

We live in a world devoid of com­plete sen­tences, phras­es or speech. Our world has been over­run by Face­book and Twit­ter and the con­stant 100-word pro­file updates. This book con­tains 100 poems each com­prised of 100 words or less. One would expect the poet­ry to be con­trived and weak. Instead, it is real­ly out­stand­ing. For the Pri­o­ry guys out there it reminds me a lot of the pré­cis process that Fr. Lawrence taught us in Form I (7th grade). (Lent to me by Dr. Reese from Mt. Mar­ty Col­lege) RECOMMENDED
