Poetry encapsulates readers, allowing the time to think in serious fashion about what the writer speaks so passionately about. Versions of the Self is more than mere poetry, it's a vision of a life, so far as I read the beginning pages, I find myself diving deep into the struggling moments of Birmingham's life.
This collection of poems, no, it's more than that. Written in a storytelling way. The self, is a journal from a woman who pours her soul in a unique way, the poetry reads like a novel. So far, it's progression seems sequential...
If not for myself diving deep into each poem individually, connecting and trying to grasp the buried meaning of this author, I could easily get caught up turning page after page, rapidly.
Christy has made this available for free to her kindle unlimited readers, which I happen to be. If you happen to read this with your subscription, it's always respectful to share a review for her.
Looking forward to finishing this within the next few days and sharing with you my complete Amazon review.
