Review of Kate Behrens
My review of Kate Behrens’s collection The Beholder (Two Rivers Press, 2012) appears on the Eyewear site (link to review here). Behrens is a British poet who I had not heard of before. Maybe the name sounded familiar, but that is it (and I think I am imagining even that). I was happy to read something so good when I wasn’t really expecting to. In the review, I kind of react to the description of the book given in some of its back cover material, versus how the book actually read to me. I guess I could have ended up writing more about cover blurbs in general, or done some analysis of them, but that is perhaps an essay for another time.
