    Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a earc of this book. The poetry didn?t really hook me, I liked that it told stories. It?s just nothing stood out to me. It seemed to drag on too. I usually like poetry more if it makes me feel something but these didn?t. I gave thi...

    Definitely a collection for these times. Troupe tackles a number of subjects from an African-American perspective which is often raw, hard-hitting, and forces the reader to see. The I/eye substitution in particular was a masterful touch. Highly recommended. With thanks for to Ne...

    Seduction: New Poems, 2013-2018 by Quincy Troupe is the poets latest collection of poetry. Troupe is an award-winning author of ten volumes of poetry, three children?s books, and six non-fiction works. Troupe offers a unique perspective on African-American life from Jazz to the s...

    Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a earc of this book. The poetry didn?t really hook me, I liked that it told stories. It?s just nothing stood out to me. It seemed to drag on too. I usually like poetry more if it makes me feel something but these didn?t. I gave thi...

    For the most part, I?m a pretty fearless reader. I?m open to all kinds of genres. But when it comes to poetry, I?m a total ?fraidy cat. Oh, sure, as a child I loved the playful poems of Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein. And once I became an adult, I embraced the poetry of D...

    This collection really fell flat for me. I found it intriguing, I liked how the prose described the many factors that control us or "seduce" us, as it were. However, the prose soon began to get political, and once it did the imagery and metaphors started to get dull, then it went downh...

    that is life, rising, falling, like pitches of music swelling with breath, with beauty, black people breathing, in the here & now every second, every day, yes black lives matter, living in a trumpet's voice, will always matter, singing in the air, will always matter beautifu...

    I feel this collection is strong enough to warrant a 5 star. It was mentioned before about the I/eye thing but I have to say that he truly earns the being the reader's eye. Opening the reader up to the subject by having them see the truth. The truest beauty in a poet is when they can m...

    Definitely a collection for these times. Troupe tackles a number of subjects from an African-American perspective which is often raw, hard-hitting, and forces the reader to see. The I/eye substitution in particular was a masterful touch. Highly recommended. With thanks for to Ne...
