`Read Pdf Á Nervous System: Poems õ A moving and kinetic collection of poetry from thewinner of the National Poetry Series, selected by Monica YounUnexpected, unusual, and stirring, the poetry of Rosalie Moffett takes us to the brink of a world continually unmaking itself, Georgia Review From diving bell spiders to the nervous system of the human body, from trees growing so heavy with fruit that they split to dogs galloping through snowy hills, Moffett s world is rendered with precision, intricacy, and extraordinary beautyExhilarating in its technical expertise but also steeped in a profound connection to the natural world and the human psyche, Nervous System is a collection from a major emerging voice This was a beautiful reflection on a mother daughter relationship that has to endure memory loss The beauty that Moffett finds in things we usually deem as scary, like spiders, enhances the uncomfortableness of seeing someone you love, not being able to do what they want to do. One of the best books of poetry I ve read all year Tender, introspective, devastating. Each poem in the anthology, and there are 74, bleeds into the next, and similar to many of Emily Dickinson s works, none have titles The poems bleed into each other so much so that I found myself reading as if it were poetic prose, or a novel I am still questioning if it s meant to be read as individual poems or as one big, interconnected poem There s lotsa extended metaphor and repeated themes and even phrases repeated verbatim Its as if Moffett said, okay, how many stories can I tell us Each poem in the anthology, and there are 74, bleeds into the next, and similar to many of Emily Dickinson s works, none have titles The poems bleed into each other so much so that I found myself reading as if it were poetic prose, or a novel I am still questioning if it s meant to be read as individual poems or as one big, interconnected poem There s lotsa extended metaphor and repeated themes and even phrases repeated verbatim Its as if Moffett said, okay, how many stories can I tell using this one metaphor or, how many ways can I spin this phrase The poems tell stories of mental health, Moffett s relationship to her mother, the female reproductive system, and natural medical science There s a good mix of scientific and purely poetic language I learned a lotta cool facts about spiders Moffett s poems were so well webbed together I say webbed in reference to all her spider imagery and although repetitive, never boring She has a very relatable and heartbreaking voice as a daughter and a woman It s ALL about motherhood, memory loss, and womanhoodit s really, really wonderful
