Read full description of the books The Dark Cave Between My Ribs:POETRY AS IT SHOULD BE - FRESH AND ACCESSIBLE
I had the pleasure of attending a book reading by Ms. Kleinman, where she shared poetry from The Dark Cave Between My Ribs.
The first thing I noticed was that she was a woman with an easy smile who was approachable and welcoming. Unlike many poets I've met, she did not give off an air of seriousness. It's no wonder that her poetry, though dark at times, is easily accessible.
I read poetry often to find inspiration, and unfortunately, so much of modern-day poetry sounds stilted, as if it's only meant to be understood by literary scholars. This is exactly why I believe poetry intimidates readers. Ms. Kleinman must also know this, as her work is anything but awkward.
We are able to relate to the topics in The Dark Cave Between My Ribs because we've all lived them, or will one day live them. Ms. Kleinman's themes of love and loss, life and family, and my favorite -- redemption touched me in their simplicity, and yet, they are not simple subjects.
One poem in particular "We Still Have Time" struck me as the perfect poem to end the book. It speaks of life and love, and it's about endings. And yet, even as I reread the poem several times, I knew I did not want the book to end. Ms. Kleinman has a unique voice, and her words will continue to stay with you for a very long time.
