Red Roses PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Red Roses free pdf Selima Hill's poetry has been called wanton, wildly imaginative, tender, intelligent, dangerous, defiant, subversive and startling. All these qualities are strongly present in her latest collection, "Red Roses", which delves into territory her earlier books were only starting to uncover. The new book is orchestrated to read as one single movement fed by variations on a theme, with each rapid-fire poem blooming suddenly into the light. These are brave and disconcerting poems which don't wear a smile to impress or hide behind. Their bleak yet engaging humour isn't a ploy or a plea for sympathy but a facing up to truth. What they offer readers isn't uplifting sentiment but honesty to experience and a shared sense of recognition that denial or evasion will never heal a wound.
