Reading poetry is almost as much an art form as is writing poetry. You don’t just skim the words of one and go on to the next. You read the words, maybe even speak them aloud, and listen to what they have to say. You focus on your own reaction, hear what the words have said to your heart, find that knowing place where Truth lives. You hold that poem for a while, live with it, taste it. Only when you have absorbed all you can for the moment do you set it down gently and rest. 

 

Claudia Stuart combines reflective poetry, powerful prose and whimsical penguin illustrations in her latest collection of textual and visual creations, Poetry, Prose & Penguins. Evocative as well as provocative, Poetry, Prose & Penguins features brilliant illustrations that portray the unique qualities of penguins, ever cooperative and communicative.

Poetry, Prose & Penguins:

 

  • Includes an opening section on free verse.
  • Features a unique format that encourages the reader to slowly and carefully navigate the witty ideas which serve as “food for thought.”
  • Presents reflections on the author’s personal life as well as pressing issues of the larger world around us – including human conditions in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and legal immigration.
