Bashful Bob And Doleful Dorinda. by Margaret Atwood · Dušan Petričić. Houghton Mifflin is proud to have published SELECTED POEMS, 1965-1975, a volume of selections from Atwood's poetry of that decade. Dancing Girls and Other Stories. This poem fascinates me with its treatment of subject-matter that Atwood often visits in her poetry: grief and loss of innocence. The spoon which was melted scrapes against. I feel that this piece is exploring the dizzying, almost out-of-body sensation that grief can inject us with. For me, the grief in this poem can and should be interpreted according to the reader. There seems to be room in this poem for grief for the self (that is to say, grief for lost innocence – the child that one once was) or grief for a loved one (particularly a for parent, I think).

Generous, compassionate, disturbing, this is poetry that emanates from the heart of human experience and seeks balance between the luminous realm of memory and the realities of everyday, between darkness and light, the capacity to perpetrate and the strength to forgive. Some poems draw on history, and on myth, both classical and popular. Other, more personal poems concern themselves with love, with the fragility of the natural world, and with death--especially in the elegiac series of meditations on the death of a parent--as they inhabit a contemporary landscape haunted by images of the past. Morning in the Burned House is infused with breathtaking insight, technical virtuosity, and a clarity of vision that has the force to change the way we look at our lives.

I purchased this book to give as a small gift. Because it arrived with a rip in the cover, I decided to keep it for myself (no big deal). I'm glad I did because I would not have wanted to give it as gift. I love Atwood's novels, but most of these poems seemed written by someone who felt they had to say something rather someone who had something to say. It's not bad poetry, just not great. I expected more from this author.
I borrowed this book from my daughter ages ago. She and I both forgot I had it. I remember visiting her and finding it and sitting and reading with fascination during some boring quiet time. She had many poems dogeared and I could say those were my favorites also. I like Margaret Atwood's writing style, her descriptions were wonderful.

Though the font was small the format of poetry left plenty of empty page to rest my eyes. Even so I needed to take my time with it to fully absorb the depth of the poems before me. I haven't read poetry for a long time so I had to remember how to think in that abstract way.

Still, I think it's about time I read The Handmaid's Tale that was recommended to me decades ago by my friend.
