EXTRACT LOVES OF THE PARROTS DUTTON BOOKS (PAPERBACK), 1989WHAT I THOUGHT
131 PAGES Poetry Review: Time Traveller Joyce Carol Oates

Here are 70 poems representing the depth and intensity of Oates' feelings, the intuitive understanding and heightened perception of life that have made her so extraordinary a writer.

Giant parrots of Yucatan perching
Splendid in the sun! Bright green
Bright yellow, bright
Arterial red!

The Time Traveller is a fantastic collection of poems. I enjoy JCO's poetry as much as her fiction, sometimes even more. Many of the poems in this collection are narrative. Each one is like a little vignette, exploring the ups and down, happiness and sadness of life. I enjoyed every poem in the collection and would have loved if it had been twice as long. When JCO gets it right - which she does in spades in The Time Traveller - I find it hard to stop reading and feel sad when I reach the end. Every poem in this collection is excellent but my favourites are Your Blood in a Little Puddle, On the Ground, The Mountain Lion, A Winter Suite, The House of Mystery and the title poem.
