review Dare Say Poems Winner of the Contemporary Poetry Series Competition Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Eschewing irony for direct statement the poems in Tod Marshall's first collection imagistically musically and passionately articulate a faith in human transcendence From the mud of our formation Choir to the dust of our dying After Kandinsky Marshall's poems lyrically obsess over how the broken and violated can envision and speak a heaven of which we knowThree long poems that shape the book are formative in this process From the structured order of Bach's Goldberg Variations looming. If there weren t so many lovely books of poetry in the world this one would be enough a slim volume that pretty much distills the essence of life and the universe between its covers The book itself isn t just a collection of poems but rather a three part musical composition with movement and voices that play entwine swell soar complexify and resolveThe poems are lyrical sometimes with a suggestion of narrative but mostly collages of images and ideas arrangements by a great mind imposing order on its universe Some poems may send you to Google to find out which composer had twenty children Bach or whether Bottichelli in a tragic fit of religious zeal really burned his nudes Some evoke a feeling a universal sentiment exuisite and resonant as a gong struck in the silence of a cold winter morning In Tod Marshall s collection I suspect that every attentive reader will find a poem that arrives on timeand demands everyonenail it to the wall After Kandinsky From the vulgar a painter s reuest to paint her pissing to the sublime caressing the wings of angels disparate elements nature history music metaphysical religion and everyday human experience commingle like colors of paint on a canvasI leave you with a few lines from the final poem Metaphysic with Applebee s what will it taketo make you believe that he and you all those I sand its the ugly and glorious things are light all the dejected excrement and holy hosts of this blessed messshine Yes we shineFor anyone who really loves poetry and occasionally ponders the human condition Dare Say is a must read

review Dare Say Poems Winner of the Contemporary Poetry Series Competition Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Ky Marshall writes like syntax a poem that fixes the body to a specific place of points and lines and planes and yet moves to celestial music a poem that tests on fifteenth century truth 'Whoever loves much does much' a poem that glistens with an unmatched insistence a poem that arrives on time and demands everyone nail it to the wallHere is a declaration that one could nail manifesto like to the wall as a pronouncement of the need to see to hear and to speak of divinity in the world. This collection begins with a beautiful series of pieces around music and birth which includes the words of Hildegard of Bingen discussions of Brahms and a variety of other powerful threads Marshall weaves together skillfully I came away from this collection most struck by Marshall s uniue and powerful imagery I dog eared several pages so I can go back to lines that resonated and inspired mehttpscribbleandhumblogspotcom20

review Dare Say Poems Winner of the Contemporary Poetry Series Competition Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Behind the opening poem Eclipse to the clash of pagan beauty and traditional religiosity in Botticelli to the Modernist meditation on form in After Kandinsky the poems return again and again to the idea of anagogical presence and how it can be best rendered in art to inspire a celebratory ethos of living Are the violent and shocking events those that best slap us awake Or are the gentle lyrical moments the times when we are most keenly aware of the song that is Being In After Kandins. When one reads a poem one reads emotion condensed One does not devour books of poetry as one devours fiction for each poem must be read alone tasted savored Some poems will be bitter some sweet most will be the main course of crisp salt pepper chew Dare Say in my opinion is a well balanced meal for the soulI believe my favorite poem today is Metaphysic with Blue The next time I read the book and there will be a next time it very well may be Nocturne Whatever it is I know my soul will again be satisfied
