Review: Biography of Water by Carrie Bennett

Synopsis: Carrie Bennett is an award-wining poet, and this is one of her most lauded work.

Review: I can see why modern poetry critics would laud Bennett's work. But it seems pretentious and overly vague. Even the structures of the poem seem to be trying too hard. Despite the praise, there was little passion or depth to the prose. Just mumbo jumbo, as if she tossed scrabble letters onto the floor and wrote down the works. There was no story to her work. Other may find more in her work than I. But this was not for me.
