    This was a fun take on all the typical fairy tales you've heard growing up The author definitely changed things up and made for an interesting read Can't wait to read of his poetry

    A few poems were great Most were confusing

    I don't really know how to rate poetry but I enjoyed this

    I hadn't picked up poetry in a while since the ole' creative writing undergrad days and was anxious to read this as it was on RUSA's 2014 Notable Books list The poetry format is very accessible I think even non poetry readers will enjoy these whimsical poems that have have a touch of magical realism mixed in with re tellings of favorite childhood stories There's a grown up Little Red Riding Hood a Belle who goes home from the castle only to return back to the Beast a wife who takes in ghosts and vampires who are sick and other adult rendered poetic versions of fairy tales Smiled a lot while reading this and enjoyed the lovely collection overall Would recommend for a little something different in your reading

    Koertge hits right to the belt of our favorite Fairy Tale characters then he draws out answers from them as only the most relentless of investigators can Ron Koertge asks Why and Why again until they finally crack in these confessional poems their true natures Raw That is where these poems will take you to the most human a character can get There you will find both humor and sorrow and some sort of Aristotelean view of the cosmos all through something you though was just a simple folk tale


  6. Melissa Melissa says:

    An interesting collection of poetry Its pretty cohesive and I feel that it has a common thread running through it I loved the fairy tale poems They were probably my favs in here Some of the poems I wasn't a fan of but the majority I enjoyed There are a couple different styles of poetry in here and that helps keep it from feeling super samey


  7. Andy Andy says:

    Not challenging like some modpostmodern poets Koertge's collection is a good reminder that poetry doesn't have to be blazing new trails syntactically or use obscure word choices to be heartfelt and sensual and imaginative


  8. Sarah Sarah says:

    This sounds super weird like Knives Lies and Girls in Red Dresses which I loved
