BOOK REVIEW OF SKELETON LEAVES

SKELETON LEAVES by Helen Marshall ( Toronto, 2011, Kelp Queen ) ISBN 978-0-9876959-12-3, no price listed, website at http://kelpqueenpress.com/

The chapbook  is a series of long poems that takes a deep look at the famed literary character Peter Pan and the society he lived in.  This is not your Disney's Pan and neither is it Barre's Pan.
The Pan in this collection is erotic as described in the poem ' The Secret of Durable Pigment

I look upon you-gost god, boy god
and dream the secret of durable pigment,
dead leaves to inscribe with fingerling poems.

The poet perceives Peter Pan as an avatar of the god Pan , embodying both his eroticism and as described in the poem 'Aurochs and Angels' his lethal ruthlessness towards the Lost Boys who start to age..

"...and when they  seem to be growing up,
which is against the rules,
Peter thined them out. "

Another line from that particular poem fully describes the essence of Marshal's take on Peter Pan.

"...you couldn't care, Peter,
my joy.
For that was the magic of it, "

This is a collection worth buying.
the heartlessness of it all. "
Peter thins them out. "

A SHOUT OUT AND A COMPLAINT

First a shout out and a hello to our 43 rd follower of this blog.  Now lets get on with my complaint.  As far as I can tell ther is only one literarymagazine based at an Ivy League campus that is a paying market for poetry, the YALE REVIEW.  All the other publications at the eight Ivy League schools are not.  If I overlooked another publication please let me know at this blog.  To me its disgraceful and if you agree or disagree then let me and your fellow blog followers know.  I woyld point out that literary magazines based at much poorer colleges like Antioch , Sewanee, Drew and even some junior colleges are paying markets.

Just a reminder; Father's Day is coming up and if you are going to get a Father's Day Gift from Amazon or Barnes & Noble then please enter btheir web sites through the portals on this web site,  I would also think that my sf/f/h poetry collection available at http://www.speakingvolumes.us/ ,Amazon, Amazon ( UK ) and Barnes & Noble would make a fine gift.
