A Glimpse to Open Pt. You [II]

eBook (PDF), 140 Pages

Price: $4.99
In the first A Glimpse to Open, Danielle asked us, “The Ouroboros, what does it mean?” She explored concepts of circles, temporality and eternity, and what it means to be a human being living happily while knowing one has an imminent death. She let us into the inner world of the poetess, and what it is like when inspiration haunts in the night. In this amazing follow-up, she turns nearly everything on its head utilizing a Taoist theme. She explores concepts of gods as symbols for the “radiance of the transcendent,” and challenges the reader to go beyond all concepts of what they think they know. Like the Goddess Kali, she tramples on god(s) and shows how woman is the creator of forms. By the end of this book, if the “reader is open,” she says, then she or he will finally experience “a glimpse to open." Light a candle and read this book slowly. It is a book one can grow with, for a lifetime. A Glimpse to Open Pt. You [II]... More > awaits…if you dare put on the green hat and journey down paths never tread…< Less

    A Glimpse to Open Pt II is like trying to write a review of a Sandro Botticelli painting. I could write a review of a good work. But am at loss for words with a great work. A Botticelli is something a wide range of people can appreciate. A Glimpse to Open Pt II blows away anyone from an intrepid reader of great literature to someone who might find the book lost on a bench by random chance in the unlikely event some one would loose it. Loosing this book though is as likely as loosing a wallet or handbag. Some of the authors I have enjoyed over time are Jack London, Nietzsche,Dostoevsky,Michel Focualt and now Danielle Sainte Marie. She is as accessible and fun as London and beyond Foucalt in terms of richness and complexity. She can be both the first step and the last word.

    If it is a gentle, frolic into the world of poetry that you seek, read no further. For those who dare, Danielle Sainte- Marie has produced (in my humble opinion) her best work to date. A Glimpse to Open Pt. You (II) forces the reader to challenge all that they feel is "real" and "right". It is evident that the Muse who guides Danielle's pen is a cruel task mistress for the poems are at once stark, heavily laden with dark imagery at times, and quickly "smack you in the face" to wake you up from being one of the sleepwalkers of this world. At the same time, you cannot help but be drawn into her love affair with the written word. The dance of the words across the page seems as if they are so truly connected and are in reality, making love to one another in their entwined dance of literary delight. Settle into your favorite reading spot and have a dictionary at your side for some of the words she uses are archaic and may be unfamiliar to the reader. Stopping... More > to look a word up only adds character and understanding to the breadth of the multiple meanings that her words supply. Your essence will thank you for it! A Glimpse to Open Part You (II) and other literary delights can be found on Danielle's website at under the "Works" link. ~Dr. Ann Oxyer (Sent to Danielle Sainte-Marie.
