    One thought on “The Animal Bridegroom”

    1. I could present _The Animal Bridegroom_ as Fairy tales revisited with a twist, but it would not be enough. Sandra's poetry is never boring, always fleet on its feet, as a sprite vanishing in the woods.So I will pluck a few of my favorites and put them, not into tigh boxes with lid attached, but on loosely separates piles that any breeze can shatter. Fairy tale revisited: The Swan maiden's tale (sad), Chaos theory, The Gretel papers (very moving)Humor: After the flood, A Daughter's a DaughterStra [...]

    2. These are beautiful poems! Whimsical, filled with fairy tales, but twisted into new forms of modern life. I didn't understand all of them as I am unfamiliar with some of the fairytale allusions but I think this is a fantastic poetry collection, especially for the author's first published collection. If only this book wasn't so difficult to come by, I'd recommend it to everyone.

    3. I only enjoy a handful of poets, but this one astonished me from the first moment I read the few poems the author put on her website [sandrakasturi/]. Her poems are witty and reminicent of fairytales, love stories, and the saturday morning cartoons we watched when we were small.This is highly recommended to everyone- take a look at her poems on her site- if you like them even a little, you should try her book.

    4. After I finished The Animal Bridegroom I figured that there had to be something wrong because I liked it.Poetry and I don't get along. I don't read epic fantasy anymore because of all the damn poems. That's probably why I don't like elves, because every time one showed up in the Lord of the Rings it turned into a spam.But I understood and liked every poem in this book and I never had to read one twice. And that, to me, makes this the best book of poetry out there.

    5. Sandra Kasturi's poetry is the very definition of mythic--she both riffs off existing stories from every culture and creates her own. Her voice is intimate yet declarative, as smoky and relentless on the page as it is in person. Gorgeous stuff.

    6. “The Animal Bridegroom” leaves a breadcrumb trail of poems to bring the reader through cultural myths and legends to a place of self-reflection. Sandra Kasturi uses fairy tale themes to open a pathway into the deep woods of myth, where she explores the changeable power of stories, their ability to shift and change like the seasons.

    7. The Burning WomanListen!You can hear her pale voicefrom within the conflagration.It always speaks truth.It always lies.She crackles like marrow-bonewhen she walks.Her eyes and mouth openand burn like magnesium.She is a contrary Gorgon;everything she looks atis forced into frenzied life.If you are very luckyand can run after heruntil she catches you,you can put her in a canning jarto hold in the air:a blaze of firefliesto light the darkness.

    8. One of the most marvelous collections of poetry from a contemporary writer. I wish this wasn't her only book! Kasturi's poems are full of whimsy and a sense of the surreal, yet remain deeply emotionally affecting. This book rarely leaves my bedside table, so often do I find myself picking it up to reread a piece. My favorite: The Stars As Seen From Alberta.

    9. I really enjoyed this wee volume of Canadian poetry. You can read a short post I wrote for PopMatters, here. I love that the forward is by Neil Gaiman for this book.

    10. A fantastic collection of fairytale poetry.Deb, I'm making James buy this for me and then I'll lend it to you, cause you'll love it!
