Availability: Ready to download

In her second collection of poetry, Learning to See in Three Dimensions, Pamela Spiro Wagner takes us deep into an exploration of the human condition by delving into the worlds of relationships, religion, nature, and mental health. In each poem--and through each intense piece of original artwork included in the book--we are led up to a line and dared to cross it into a new In her second collection of poetry, Learning to See in Three Dimensions, Pamela Spiro Wagner takes us deep into an exploration of the human condition by delving into the worlds of relationships, religion, nature, and mental health. In each poem--and through each intense piece of original artwork included in the book--we are led up to a line and dared to cross it into a new paradigm of understanding the world. In "Mosaic" we are challenged to understand "assembling beauty from broken things"; in "State Property" we are led to consider how with "one aching brick at a time, / some walls are built, others are torn down..."; in "Friday Night Vigil" we must reconcile "How lovely the world is, although it's dying." Just as powerful and original as Wagner's insights is her description: "like the poplar / still spilling her yellow dress / to the insistent fingertips of fall" in "When I Lose You" and in "Afterwards, What the Mother Said," in which Wagner writes of the mother of a jihadist martyr, "But had I known of his plans / I would have taken a blade, sliced open my heart and crammed him deep inside. // I would have seamed it tight to seal him in. / I would have never let him go." In this rich, full collection, Wagner's poetry pulls us into new territory through her alternating playfulness, hope, and, especially in the superb section Poems In Which I Speak Frankly, courage, a courage from which we all have much to learn.

    NOTE: I won this book in a GR Giveaway in exchange for an honest review. What a terrific gem! I loved everything about this book: - the soft, velvety feel of the cover - the incredible artwork throughout - how the poems in each section match the artwork that starts that section - the poems; they feel, they hurt, they love Ms Wagner is a very talented lady with more than one medium of talent.

This book is a Keeper.

    This book is a portal into a human soul with landscapes and lyerics both anguished and divine. Catch your breath at the heights of her poetry and tip-toe through her stunning paintings with their archetypal intensity. Ms. Wagner's writing is sublime as are her paintings. Her genius shakes us to our core and reverberates there long after. This book is an experience in ultra-consciousness which every serious reader can aspire to.

    This was a good collection of poetry. I didn't love it as much as I have loved some of the other poetry collections I have read this year. It is broken into five sections called Desire and Memory, Un/Natural Phenomena, Poems in Which I Speak Frankly, God, the Great Avoider, and Learning to See in Three Dimensions. My favorite section was Poems in Which I Speak Frankly. Some of my favorite poems in the collection were: "Mosaic," "State Property," "We Have Come Into the World to Sing," "Natural Ph This was a good collection of poetry.

I also enjoyed the pictures throught the collection. They helped to illustrate the poems.
