Comments for Strike Anywhere: Poems

Strike AnywhereStrike Anywhere: Poems: 11/10/08

Strike Anywhere by Dean Young is his third collection of poetry. It's a slim volume, nearly identical in length to Some Ether by Nick Flynn.

Dean Young is an award winning poet. His poems are surrealist. I like surrealism but in smaller doses. Eighty pages of surrealism was more than I could handle.

I managed to read seriously the first twenty pages. After that I resorted to skimming. Perhaps if I'd had the opportunity to read the collection at a slower pace or in a quieter location I would have had a more positive experience. As it was, the disjointed phrases and strange imagery made for a non comprehensible read.
