The feeling and expression of strong emotions acts as the healthy catharsis that can allow poet/goddess/woman to open her heart to the peace, self-love and joy that she deserves.

The poetry itself - especially the parts about rewriting Aphrodite's story far away from the male gaze - was intriguing, but it didn't capture me for long. Aphrodite Made Me Do It is a feminist poetry collection about love, loss, insecurity, pain, and empowerment.it is also really interesting as it goes between the pov being of the author and being of the goddess aphrodite, but seeing themselves within eachother. Known for her eponymous blog, she is now the author of multiple poetry collections, including When The Stars Wrote Back (2020), Aphrodite Made Me Do It (2019), Honeybee (2018), and The Dogs I Have Kissed (2015) which won a Goodreads Choice Award the year of its release. There was something so unique about this collection and I love that the author included her illustrations and art work. She rails at the way that popular culture has represented her as a sexualised, unintellectual being. The million copy bestseller, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and.

I usually really enjoy longer poems, but here, the supposed longer poems aren't giving me what they are suppose to : they usually consist of a succession of short sentences that seem more like a bullet-pointed draft than an actual poem. This collection is based around mythology and is also about strength, empowerment and self-appreciation.Its theme is not specific but mainly focuses on love, letting-go-of-past, be-your-self, self-healing etc. I want to give young, new poets a chance and I am always looking for new talent, but every time I try them out, I end up disappointed. After a poem introducing the author’s voice and relationship to love, she goes on to explain a dream she had in which Aphrodite visited her and asked, “What do you need? Bestselling and award-winning author Trista Mateer takes an imaginative approach to self-care in this new poetry and prose collection, Aphrodite Made Me Do It. i thought this book could get more "tumblier" and here goes, in the middle of the book, a random list of things to do for your mental health.

I feel like I come out of most poetry/prose collections with generally the same thoughts and feelings. And thank you: for dog-earing pages, for highlighting your favourite lines, for sharing your stories with me, for sharing your time with me.The author uses this dialogue to explore ideas of womanhood, and womanhood in relation to the ideas that the goddess represents: pleasure and pain, love and sex, beauty and the gentle, suffering female. It feels awful saying that, because each experience is a different one and it's unfair to compare them, but if you put two modern poems by different poets side by side and asked me to correctly match them to their poets, there's a strong chance I'll be unsuccessful. This dream/encounter set the stage for a beautiful conversation between the two; one which holds value for anyone who would hear it. In Troy they fought over Helen like children but Achilles mourned Patroclus the way a soul mourns a body. In response to these representations, the poet presents the reader with a powerful goddess, who knows her own mind and who is very angry.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Never has a poetry collection made me feel things so deep in my soul that it feels like I’ve dived deeper than the ocean floor. In honor of that, I'm reviewing a poetry book I recently stumbled upon in my library's catalog on Hoopla and instantly fell in LOVE with.

It talks about self-care and being responsible for your own healing and of finding the real meaning of love. I was a little horrified at an earlier review that said it came across as generic feminist poetry as I actually found this to be quite the opposite. Literature degree, but I’ve come to realise that I don’t hate poetry, it’s just a matter of finding the words that sing to you. Sometimes the art is the poetry itself, with each page/canvas being a line that flows into the next. Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement.
