One thought on “Embers on the Stairs

  1. Nina on said:

    Reading Bavetta’s newest collection is like wandering through a retrospective of a woman’s life. Her writing is quiet, thoughtful, and thought-provoking. Many of the poems have flashes of subtle humor, making the reader feel as though she would like to become friends with the speaker.There are understated layers of meaning in poems depicting an event which, on the surface, appears ordinary. In “Self Service,” a buffet is described. Every line of this poem is a metaphor for life. In the b [...]

    Reading 'Embers on the Stairs' reminded me of why I love poetry. The postman delivered the book to my door early this afternoon, and with the exception of coffee and bathroom breaks, I hadn't managed to put it down. Maybe the fact that I consider Ruth a good friend, (one without a drop of pretense or condescension in her body) has made me read these poems with a fuller appreciation of the poet who wrote them. By the end of the book, you can’t help but feel a little transfigured, a little more [...]

    One of the best books of poetry I've read since Bavetta's Fugitive Pigments came out last year, Embers on the Stairs is the product of a mature talent in command of her craft. In our youth-obsessed, sexist culture, it's a treat to read "Ode to Menopause." The writer exults: "no condoms, no jelly/no pills, no diaphragm/no fruit of desire/but desire itself." As a New-England-educated Californian, I appreciated the declaration in "Oranges and Pomegranates": "I'm tired of hearing about weathered bar [...]

    Many enjoyable poems and several killers (such as "Addictions" and "Let there always be"). My favorite lines are from the poem "Requiem for July":If water is loneliness,I am a swimmer seeking stars.Hell, yes!

  5. Alarie on said:

    These poems spoke to me, particularly since Bavetta is close to my age, lives near the ocean, and has an artist’s eye for creating memorable detail. I had too many favorite poems to name, but especially enjoyed “Elegy for my 1958 Volkswagen,” the poem Rattle quoted as an example of what makes its editor accept a poem: “Four cylinders chugging/in the rear, it was like being chased/by a busy washing machine.” Bavetta balances humor and pathos, sometimes in the same poem. In “The Oracle [...]

    I've been allowing myself one or two of these poems a day for a while because they are so evocative and speak to me in layers. Now that I have I have finished, I will go back to the beginning and start again. This is really an outstanding collection.

  7. Carol on said:

    A second book by a talented lady. She reaches into your heart with her simplistic look at the surrounding world. She shares moments of triumph , sadness and victories of her life. A wonderful uplifting collection of poetry.

  8. Sherry Chandler on said:

    In her cover blurb for this book, Lisa Cihlar says "Ruth Bavetta's poems are clever. But that's okay . . ."And they are clever and it is okay. But I would use another term. I'd say the poems in Embers on the Stairs are irreverent.There's Bavetta's take on breast cancer consultation, for example, in "The Oracles"The first doctorhas a fine head of white hair.He says the only cureis to cut it all off . .The second doctor says. . . whichever I want.What I want is to run . . .Doctor number threebound [...]
