Birth Year Reading Challenge 2018 - My Wrap-Up
Aaaaand done! I finished early this year, perhaps because the books I chose included two books of poetry that made enjoyable reading and a third book that I couldn't wait to finish, and not in a good way.
Pablo Neruda remains one of my favorite poets (review). He captures an incredible amount of emotion with his startling imagery.
Denise Levertov has a fine ear for meter and a sharp eye for observation (review). I prefer poems that are slightly more concrete, where it's not so difficult to understand what's happening -- but that's just me.
Saul Bellow? No thanks! I've said all I'm going to say about that (review).
I'm not eligible for any prizes because this is my own challenge, but rest assured I've been buying myself little gifts, as I always do, during the holiday shopping.
I'll definitely be hosting the Birth Year Reading Challenge next year, too. It's a fun one!
