Hyperbole, Issue #012 (Jan. 31, 2008) - Harpoon, Poetry Chapbook Review
January 31, 2008
Hello Poets and Poetry Lovers

Got a new chapbook review this week. Harpoon by Michael Cavendish. I've also recently sent a poetry book review to Rattle. I will let you know when it is published. As for Harpoon, see "Poetry Book Reviews" below.

If you're wondering which blog posts to read this week, I recommend "True Poetry: Criticizing The Critic" and "Poetics: The 7 Essential Elements Of Poetry." Of course, they're all good.

Poetry Book Review: Harpoon

Harpoon is Michael Cavendish’s first poetry chapbook. A lawyer by profession, he has led a rather interesting life: Besides stalking and killing a wild boar, harvesting jellyfish, and studying at a Vienna garret, he was raised by opera singers, spent nine consecutive years at university, and learned French and German at the family table. Not exactly the fantasy life for most of us, but it’s no average existence either.
