    One thought on “Starred Wire

    1. Bethany on said:

      There were few moments that were quote-worthy, and a few poems (La and Contretemps among them) that I really really liked. But mostly, especially in the middle, I was bored. The back of the book says that Ange has the sophistication of John Ashberry. I find the idea of sophistication in poetry very boring. Thus my 3 stars are because she has crafted good poems, but they do not excite me or make me feel anything.

    2. Jeff T. on said:

      The first time I tried to read it, the book made little sense to me and the high diction seemed overly conspicuous. This time around I still felt lost for the most part, but the language seemed appropriate to the experience I had with the poems. There's an amiability to Mlinko's poems that arrives as a late invitation to pleasure of acquaintance. I'm sure I'll be back.

    3. Liz Brennan on said:

      I once (very long ago) gave a reading with Ange at a small poetry gathering in MA. I'm now delighted to be reading the work of such a dedicated poet.

    4. Eddie Watkins on said:

      Ahhh as far as pure synthetic pleasures go this poetry is as close as aspartame can come to pure cane

    5. Brendan on said:

      The occasional good line, but not a single full poem worth mentioning. Seething like champagne or a midnight city where girlsCross big avenues alone- "Femme Fatale Geography"It's the sort of weather Tybalt murdered Mercutio in.- "The Most Awkward Hugger"

    6. Zach on said:

      Her use of diction is so striking, but it pretty much ends there. I learned like 100 new words from this!
