Wildflowers and the Natural World (Book Review)

The Wild Iris - Louise Glück B-
Published November 1993

Glück's Pulitzer Prize winning collection, The Wild Iris, is written from three different points of view; An omnipresent god, flowers, and a human. It feels a little unfair to rate the book after one reading because the poems demand to be read and re-read numerous times. However, many of these poems didn't engage me like I thought they might. The Wild Iris is an interesting concept and Glück is a wonderful writer; but, ultimately the poems left me slightly underwhelmed.
