    If All the World and Love Were Young (E–pub) This is an extraordinary moving collection of poems whose dense constrained forms are the forms the intellect takes when it is coping; the self takes when it can as it must; when the subject envelopes This book is as rich sustaining as memorable inimitable as is the loved one's voice You will follow it across the Causeway into the beached whale in Donegal into the pixelated hyacinths and the heavy rain With t

REVIEW ☆ SALAMUSEO.CO Ò Stephen Sexton FREE DOWNLOAD Ì If All the World and Love Were Young Stephen Sexton Ò 1 FREE DOWNLOAD Ted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection When Stephen Sexton was young video games were a way to slip through the looking glass; to be in two places at once; to be two people at once In these poems about the death of his mother this moving. Sometimes a way of coping with events in the real world is to head back to the things that gave you comfort in the past For Stephen Sexton this means heading to the world of Super Mario Kart where he spent lots of his youth racing against the characters in this colourful and larger than life world It was a place that infused his reality and gave him lots of happy memories to look back onIt is this nostalgic place that he returns to in this book freuently as the poems take us through the various tracks and characters in the game The fun though is short lived because all the way through he has the agony of watching his mothers illness develop to the point where it finally claimed herFor a collection of poems that leans heavily on gamer references about a fun thing to play it is heavily draped with sorrow and grief I liked the way that he varied the pace and structure of the poems and having those two themes running all the way through it builds into a narrative thread and feels like we are sharing his grief Definitely one to read again one dayThree Favourite PoemsDonut Plains 1Chocolate Secret 7 Larry s Castle
