Book: Dusk Before Dawn - Poems by Jessica Knauss
|5 stars, 1 review on Amazon|
Jessica Knaussabout this book: This is the poetry book for people who don't know they like poetry. Here you will find no pretense or posturing, no gloomy suicide odes, and almost no rhymes.
You will find unusual metaphors, smooth rhythms, explorations of the meaning of love, and honest wonder at the beauties of life. You will find English from its origins, a smattering of Spanish (translated for English readers), history, love poems, storm poems, and travel poems.
• "Dusk Before Dawn was a wonderful short collection of poetry. ... The Spanish influence in the poems and the almost seamless melding of the Spanish language into many of the works seemed to draw a connection between the reader, the author's thoughts and the struggles and triumphs of Spanish culture." — Gorfo, on Goodreads
• "Her poems are often exuberant, never cloying: she is economical; never excessive. This is the poetry of a young woman with a poetic grace and poise few achieve in a lifetime." — Seymour Hamilton, on Amazon
