They're just not great. Feb 14, Tracy rated it it was amazing. I do not want to return this to the library. I am risking fines. As usual, Notley made me gasp and grab my heart. This book is full of grief and humanity. Nov 25, Timothy Green rated it did not like it. Molly Peacock recommended this, and I just couldn't get into it. Stylistically interesting, but why am I supposed to care about your stereotypical adolescent experiences?
It's like reading Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man without a main character. So many people love it, though. I must be missing something Jan 09, Milo rated it liked it Shelves: poetry-and-poetics.

Quotes from Mysteries of Smal Welcome back. Like the colorful collages she assembles from paper and other found materials, Notley erects structures of image and feeling to house the memories that swirl around her in the present. In their feverish, intelligent renderings of moments both precise and ephemeral, Notley's poems manage to mirror and transcend the times they evoke.
Her profound tributes to the stages of her life and to the identities she has assumed—child, youth, lover, poet, wife, mother, friend, and widow—are remarkable for their insight and wisdom, and for the courage of their unblinking gaze. In her latest collection, Notley takes a step back from the body of work she has amassed over the last three decades The Descent of Alette; Selected Poems; etc. Casual, forthright and perceptive, it is a culminating effort. Notley, as is her style, rarely shies away from unabashed, almost Whitmanesque generalizations, and here her bravery pays off. Condition: Brand New.
