My World Of Etherées
For a number of years, now, I have witnessed a most remarkable phenomenon, the evolution of a poet and her work.
Carol Knepper is the poet in question. And to prove that her first book of poetry, "Clean and Simple Stones" (2007), was not a fluke, she now dazzles the world of literature with her new book, "My World Of Etherées."
As Carol notes in her introduction to this book, the etherée is a relatively new form, but it is a popular and most challenging form to master.
Not only are her poems timely, thematic, and rife with invigorating social commentary, but they are also aesthetic gems.
Executed with the precision of a figure skater doing a triple-toe loop, Carol offers the reader a veritable sensual feast as she delves into this most captivating of forms – and delivers!
No one does this genre with more finesse, appealing to the senses, stirring the imagination, and feeding the soul.
Never be fooled by the quiet, unassuming demeanour of this poet. Embodied therein is an artist who is both genuine and of the genius variety. And, having read all of these poems, from their very date of creation, as well as having seen the evolution of the poet herself, what else could I possibly ever say but bravo! and encore!
