    I received a free borrowed copy from NetGally in return for an honest review. Embodied is an ambitious book trying to bring graphic art and poetry together with a focus on feminist work, I love the idea of the book, but the execution was lacking. At times the art felt it did not match the poem it was paired with and the poem was kind of lost in the images, but I did like they put the full poem on its own and in its intended style separately.

    i received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. overall, i'd say this anthology is tepid - it's neither cohesively bad or cohesively good, but i think that there are some wider formatting issues that really drag the whole thing down. stand-out poems like 'good bones', 'a love letter to the decades i have kissed', 'half girl then elegy', 'birth', and 'to the cherry blossoms on 16th and wharton' are sometimes muddled or even lose some of the meaning with the formatting, and th i received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. overall, i'd say this anthology is tepid - it's neither cohesively bad or cohesively good, but i think that there are some wider formatting issues that really drag the whole thing down. stand-out poems like 'good bones', 'a love letter to the decades i have kissed', 'half girl then elegy', 'birth', and 'to the cherry blossoms on 16th and wharton' are sometimes muddled or even lose some of the meaning with the formatting, and the visuals make it difficult to read. 'good bones' i think is one of the most disjoined, as the visuals just show a woman moving out and a couple moving in, where the poem reads more about trying to rear children optimistically to show the good in the world, though the world 'is at least half-terrible'. in terms of the best merging of visuals and poetry, 'a love letter to the decades i have kissed or notes on turning 50' and 'birth' are amongst the best in the anthology, and 'drown' is also very good. i think that 'birth' is probably the only poem in the anthology to have 100% conveyed the structured of the poem accurately through the art, as the poem itself is a concrete poem in the shape of a wishbone 'V', and the associated comic maintains that shape and parallels it in many of its pages.

    This collection of poems thats brought to life with beautiful illustrations as a comic blows my mind. There were a couple in this collection that gave me so many feels. It's a celebration of intersectional feminism. I love poetry! But I am new to graphic novels. However this was a page turner for me. I felt the connection between words and images was wonderful. It brought the words to life. I hope that they do more graphic novels like this. It was a joy to experience. In Short: Did I like it?

Would I read more by the author? There are def a few names in this collection i'll be keeping an eye on ( not to sound like a creeper ha ha )

    Pluses - I'm glad this type of pairing exists. It's a really interesting concept to combine poetry and graphic novels together. The comics show a huge range of style, which is also great. Negatives - Many of the combinations didn't feel cohesive. It makes me wonder if the illustrator and poet even had conversations with each other. There's a disconnect I can't quite finger. Also, the characters on the cover have absolutely no resemblance to the content within. Whatever their stories are, they do Pluses - I'm glad this type of pairing exists.

    I'll admit, poetry is kind of over my head. I spent more time looking at the gorgeous pictures (honestly it was that stunning cover art that made me pick this up initially). My favorite poem was Good Bones by Maggie Smith. The idea that we can make this world a better place, for ourselves, for future generations, even if everything's kind of a sh*t hole right now, really resonated with me. I think it's worth picking up to at least flip through the artwork. And maybe you'll also find that one poe I'll admit, poetry is kind of over my head.
