Along the Journey

Abstract:
The poetry of Jeanne Lanigan reveals a harmony of sound and sense that is as simple as a friendly conversation….. she shares with her reader the wisdom and insights gained from the past and the expectations of journeys yet to come. The voice in these poems is gentle and compassionate, never biting or bitter, and like an old and dear friend, she wraps you in a warmth of emotional feeling for language, life, and laughter. The kindred sensibility to Rumi's spirit in the tone of these poems gives them universal and lasting appeal.

Customer Reviews

  In my view.... , 10/10/2004
Reviewer: Underdog
Browsing through the book selections here, this book caught my eye especially because of the previous review about it. For some reason, the analyst in me is always curious about reviews or opinions that hold such strongly negative reactions. Surely there is a correlation to offensive/defensive reasons, I sometimes think. Regardless, the previous reaction to this book prompted me to read the Excerpt page instead of merely passing it by. In addition, I found two poems that I liked well enough to, even standing alone, justify the cost of the book ("Intimate Truth" and "Nighttime"). In an individualist society, beauty and worth will always be in the eye of the beholder and not filtered through the eye of the crowd. Poetry is very subjective, and its merits within one's own heart, where it is actually to be read, can only be gaged in regard to how one is able to relate to the words. In ending, I would like to encourage this author to keep writing, after shaking the negative voices from your obviously sensitive, poetic soul.
