Read full description of the books Sorting Myself: a collection of poetry:I am not acquainted with the author and downloaded her book from Amazon.com.
Sorting Myself is an excellent book of short poems. Sarahbeth Caplin looks candidly at questions that all of us ask which are often timeless in their no answer.
Her verse is mostly free form, but you glide along it effortlessly. You may not have walked in her many shoes, but you will be able to relate.
Her poetry left me with a plethora of quotes for my larder. From Writer's Block: "An injection of ink might help me think of some way to be heard."
In Authenticity she comments, "The best words are served whole for wise words are not to be minced." And mincing words is something you won't see from Ms. Caplin.
The color of shame is cherry-tree is an insightful look at the double-standard frustration of being a woman in the modern era.
I admire her shrewd use of structure, italicized parentheses in several poems that momentarily took you out of the current but kept you in the stream. One instance occurs in the short titled JM, which ends with a blank page that SHOUTS volumes.
I have several more favorites, too many to list. This is definitely a book that will stay on my Kindle for frequent inspiration.
(My personal guide for ratings are as follows: 5 stars, equal to any book of its genre, better than most; 4 stars, content that easily moves past a few formatting errors that do little or nothing to impact it, still highly recommended; 3 stars, technical errors or format choices impaired the flow of the book although I did enjoy the content. 2 stars, I struggled with the book due to either technical errors and/or a concept that was trite or underwritten. 1 star signifies a book that I abandoned before finishing due to structural errors in either plot or mechanics.)
Read information about the authorHello! I'm Sarahbeth; I don't have a middle name. You can call me Beth, or SB.
I've been writing since I was old enough to hold a crayon. My genres are memoir, YA fiction, and poetry, with themes that cover religion, feminism, and self-exploration. "Coming of age" stories are my favorite: I love reading/writing about flawed characters who learn from their past mistakes, or use a painful past as motivation to make positive changes in the world.
