    Ever since the first time I read this, it has become the book by which all other books are judged Oz s verse has such a melancholic beauty to it Still not a book for everyone, but if it s a book for you, you will never forget it.

    No, this was not for me This reads as a collection of related poems that strung together are meant to tell a story Some of the lines were pretty and did have me thinking, but most of the time I was just confused Poems are intermixed with sections of prose poetry Some of the poems have lines that rhyme, but the rhymes were silly, simplistic other words would have madesense The

    Difficult to read until you realize it is poetry.

    A gutsy work by an established writer who uses his fame in order to spread out and take chances by experimenting with many literary elements, including form there is some poetry, and much of the prose is in the form of verse , voice a base of third person omniscient, with bits of other voices here and there , tense mostly present, but other tenses appear as well , and structure short pieces that move forward f
