Poetry Books for Your Book Club
a book list by Serena M. Agusto-Cox, Editor, Poet, Photographer & Book Review Blogger at Savvy Verse & Wit
Given that each book club member brings their own experiences and perceptions of poets with them to the meeting, poetry lends itself to a varied and passionate discussion beyond anything you experience with novels, nonfiction, and other genres. Where someone may see passion in the first lines of a poem, another member may see sarcasm. Poetry uses an economy of words to express larger ideas and situations to the reader, and through book club discussion one or more of these can be revealed. Each of these poetry collections will lend themselves to group discussions of emotion, imagery, and over-arching societal themes of acceptance, dissension, and inner strength and beauty.
