“Reviewed By Marie-Helene Fasquel for Readers’ Favorite
A Frostbitten Memory of a Stillborn Spring by Lindy Kennedy is a collection of poems divided into three chapters: People and Love, Things and Time, and Places and Ambition. The introduction allows the reader to understand the poet’s message: “In this book, there are poems, some big and some small. […] Some are small, intimate, and shy. Those poems inside are all about what comprises a life […].” The author wills us to feel more connected with others and with ourselves, and I believe she has fully succeeded in this difficult and fascinating task.
A Frostbitten Memory of a Stillborn Spring by Lindy Kennedy is a beautiful and poignant collection of poems. I am a literature teacher. I teach students how to love and understand poems all year long, but all the same, I am not in love with any poems. However, these are fascinating and engaging, well-written but above all heart-rending pieces. Lost love and the feelings you experience are shared in an amazingly powerful yet simple way in “Where are you?” and, to top it all, my favorite French writer is quoted: “like Proust, I’m long-lost in pursuit / of something which by definition, can never be” in the best way possible (an analysis of the poem as well as In Search of Lost Time). It is difficult to choose among this amazing collection of poems, but I’d like to share my response to “Hell is a Cold Place,” which also deals with love lost: it is its simplicity and shortness (1 line) which make it so tragic and endearing to the reader or listener. I particularly enjoyed “Compulsion,” which is also all about the beauty of words and their meaning. To conclude, I appreciated each and every poem and found them extremely enlightening and potent. That is why I can recommend this collection wholeheartedly as I read and enjoyed it.”
