    My review, as well as my other thoughts on reading, also can be found on my blog. Sauntering about internal and urban landscapes, past and present, Eileen Myles comments upon politics, pop culture, desire, selfhood, and more in the poems of their latest collection, Evolution. Scatte...

    An intriguing collection of poems that will take more than one reading or a deal of pondering over each poem. The short lines do not complete a thought and the lack of punctuation leaves the reader to find structure in the lines and create meaning between the words. I am reminded of th...

    Five stars for the introduction, the acceptance speech, and ?Sweet Heart? alone. ...

    This review first appeared on the blog Ally's Appraisals: https://wp.me/p37L0Q-X5. My Thoughts: In Evolution we see a lot of the poet, Eileen Myles, in her work. I really enjoyed everything Evolution had to offer, the poetry is both emotional and refreshing - Myles shows us all tha...

    I find it difficult to read these poems. Myles makes up her own rules, whether she writes prose or poetry. Sometimes she runs words without a "road map" (no punctuation, capitalization), or in her poems splits up a word (the beginning ends one line, the end begins the following line), ...

    This poetry graces us in Myles' characteristic vernacular style. Featuring lesbians, New York City, and a world that is falling apart, it could not be a more timely look inside the mind of the poet genius. The poems range in length, some only a sentence long, giving Rupi Kaur a run for...

    Much of the poetry felt like free stream-of-consciousness ramblings rather than anything crafted or worthwhile to me. Wasn't my style of poetry, not for me. ...

    Not for me. I've tried to read this twice, and just can't get into it. It's a shame, as the blurb sounded quite promising, and I do love contemporary poetry. ...

    instant classic ...

    ... I suppose going blind is momentary seeing colours in everything and remembering them for the rest of your life. ...

    Evolution was my first exposure to the poetry of Eileen Myles. I first started hearing about Myles in the writings of Maggie Nelson and I'm glad I finally sat down, picked up this book, and got down to business. At a superficial level, my first impression of Myles' poetry was that it w...

    I'm not a regular poetry reader, I often end up putting down poetry collections or speeding through almost to get it over with. With Evolution, I did none of that. Myles's poetry is obscure, hiding in itself, never completing a sentence but also has this rhythm that makes reading a del...

    My review, as well as my other thoughts on reading, also can be found on my blog. Sauntering about internal and urban landscapes, past and present, Eileen Myles comments upon politics, pop culture, desire, selfhood, and more in the poems of their latest collection, Evolution. Scatte...

    An intriguing collection of poems that will take more than one reading or a deal of pondering over each poem. The short lines do not complete a thought and the lack of punctuation leaves the reader to find structure in the lines and create meaning between the words. I am reminded of th...

    I find it difficult to read these poems. Myles makes up her own rules, whether she writes prose or poetry. Sometimes she runs words without a "road map" (no punctuation, capitalization), or in her poems splits up a word (the beginning ends one line, the end begins the following line), ...

    This poetry graces us in Myles' characteristic vernacular style. Featuring lesbians, New York City, and a world that is falling apart, it could not be a more timely look inside the mind of the poet genius. The poems range in length, some only a sentence long, giving Rupi Kaur a run for...

    This poetry graces us in Myles' characteristic vernacular style. Featuring lesbians, New York City, and a world that is falling apart, it could not be a more timely look inside the mind of the poet genius. The poems range in length, some only a sentence long, giving Rupi Kaur a run for...

    Much of the poetry felt like free stream-of-consciousness ramblings rather than anything crafted or worthwhile to me. Wasn't my style of poetry, not for me. ...

    Not for me. I've tried to read this twice, and just can't get into it. It's a shame, as the blurb sounded quite promising, and I do love contemporary poetry. ...

    My review, as well as my other thoughts on reading, also can be found on my blog. Sauntering about internal and urban landscapes, past and present, Eileen Myles comments upon politics, pop culture, desire, selfhood, and more in the poems of their latest collection, Evolution. Scatte...

    An intriguing collection of poems that will take more than one reading or a deal of pondering over each poem. The short lines do not complete a thought and the lack of punctuation leaves the reader to find structure in the lines and create meaning between the words. I am reminded of th...

    Evolution was my first exposure to the poetry of Eileen Myles. I first started hearing about Myles in the writings of Maggie Nelson and I'm glad I finally sat down, picked up this book, and got down to business. At a superficial level, my first impression of Myles' poetry was that it w...

    I'm not a regular poetry reader, I often end up putting down poetry collections or speeding through almost to get it over with. With Evolution, I did none of that. Myles's poetry is obscure, hiding in itself, never completing a sentence but also has this rhythm that makes reading a del...
