    One thought on “Famous”

    1. I am really not a poetry person, so that this got four stars should really say something!These are quiet poems about relatively mundane things - a Holiday Inn, for example, or the marriage bed; some are about semi-famous people (Mary Todd Lincoln). My favorite is "How to Read This Story to Your Children", which encapsulates what I think of when I read aloud.It's a keeper, and perhaps even a book to be re-read sometime soon.

    2. Gorgeous, plain-spoken, rich, illuminating. Like a field of uranium and diamonds. I've read this 5 or 6 times. I could read it every day and never tire of her writing. I checked this out from the library and paid $10 in fines because I couldn't bear to part with it. Her details are as exacting as a Coco Chanel button and are as familiar and lovely as an heirloom apple.

    3. American feminine themes dominate this lovely collection of poetry. It didn't hurt that we heard her read from this book earlier this year. She lives in Seattle and enjoys motherhood among many other things as an adult woman on top of her life.

    4. Well crafted poems addressing everyday issues. Strong use of metaphor. I am eager to read further work by Flenniken

    5. Kathleen Flenniken, a recent poet laureate of Washington State, is an everyday poet--my favorite kind. Many of her poems are about ordinary things ("Dust," "Shampoo," "What I Learn Weeding")and common human experiences (traveling, having conversations, and--especially--reading).Ms. Flenniken's poems are not universally accessible to readers who don't know the back stories (although many of them are). But even the poems that don't entirely "make sense" to me are somehow pleasing, like abstract ar [...]

    6. I read this in preparation for her visit to Garfield County (as Washington State Poet Laureate she has made it her mission to try to visit all 39 counties in the state). This is a wonderful collection! While I may have started reading it in a "doing homework" frame of mind, by the time I was only a few poems in I was lost in enjoyment of her language and ability to reveal the emotional landscape hidden under life's seemingly mundane moments. Poems I especially liked: How to Read This Story to Yo [...]

    7. Since reading and appreciating poetry exists as a singular pleasure, I feel that I have missed many of these poems because the lighting was off or the sound was tinny. But I latched on to a few that I really enjoyed: "Reading Hamilton's Biography of Robert Lowell" makes me want to dust off my copy and read it, and "My Mother's Biographies" makes me curious to see those books too, and the best, "The New Language," an invocation into the new tongue of communication and intimacy.

    8. Attended a poetry reading at the Fremont Public Library today. Richard Wakefield, Kathleen Flenniken, and the Washington State Poet Laureate, Sam Green read. Kathleen read selections from her book 'Famous' and early writings. I bought the book after the reading and read it this evening. A wonderful book of poetry!

    9. Didn't finish; not my style.Didn't have the greatest luck with 'award-winning' books this trip to the library.
