New Review of Confessions of a Captured Angel by Grace Cavalieri

“This is a book I’d teach to any age/any student/ because it demonstrates the worth of poetry. I often repeat what Joseph Brodsky said about poetry being the only record of human sensibilities, beginning in Greek and Roman antiquity. The way Carpathios sees the world is the record I’d like of our time.”  ~Grace Cavalieri

Hello, and welcome.

I’ve been lucky to write some poems, and to have some of them appear in books. Feel free to look around. I’m especially excited about a couple of recent publications. In 2015 I won the Slipstream Press Poetry Competition, which resulted in the publication of my chapbook, The Function of Sadness. My new full-length collection, Confessions of a Captured Angel, was just released this summer from the fine press, Terrapin Books.

I do readings, workshops, book festivals, other events. So, don’t hesitate to contact me, if the spirit moves you….
