Girl On Fire

eBook (ePub)
(9 Ratings)
Price: $7.94
Girl on Fire is the first published poetry collection of Emma Stace Darling. She comes from Hastings in the south of England and now lives in Italy, which she loves. This book describes part of Emma's experiences of life as an artist. Singing opera, acting, writing, painting and performance art are translated here into a diverse, exhilarating, completely captivating journey. Being charismatic, natural funny, warm, sharp, and highly sensitive will never exclude their evil twins, and Emma describes her equal amounts of exquisite physical and emotional pain here with the same fearless candour as her sometimes in your face (and often dark) limericks. Experiencing life to the full, this is her first open account. Emma's deep love for chocolate is given a mention too.

    This book contains poems that are sensuous, sumptuous and passionate, especially towards the divine, which is to be found in every part of the poet's life. Whether she's writing about love, Italian life or leaving friends, the strength of her feelings flows across the page like splashes of colour. At first, the limericks seem out of place, but even these are evidence of her lust for life, her sense of fun and she has clearly mastered that one verse form among many others. I strongly recommend this collection for its verve, warmth and its sheer capacity to overflow with renewed appreciation of how good life acn be.

    Though I'm no poetry connoisseur, there are definite things I look for in poetry of any age, and this volume has them all: superb poetic craft, singability (well, I'm a composer), and striking content - these poems exist for a reason. Ms. Darling shares an awful lot that feels autobiographical, and a lot that invites us to look at the world a bit differently. She has a winning way of turning a surprise line at the end. Highly recommended.
