Bougainvillea Ringplay PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Bougainvillea Ringplay free pdf Rooted in the landscape of the Bahamas and marked by a mastery of syntax, these poems are finely crafted works of art that reveal a distinctive use of language that is sensual in the most literal sense--the smell of vanilla and sex- the sound of waves, radio, and voices- the taste of crab soup- the texture of hurricane wind- and the chaos of colors bombarding the eye. With a sharp sense of detail and unsettling truth-telling, the poems eschew all but the most utilitarian of punctuation marks--question marks, apostrophes, and inverted commas--while encapsulating the very essence of the Bahamas.
