For the Ride

Written in a breathless e.e. cummings style, the poem fractures the rules of spelling, grammar, syntax, and formal poetry and is at times unintelligible. But it also brims with fresh, vibrant metaphors and irony, not the least being the religious innuendos that permeate the text. For sophisticated readers of poetry.

Important work from a leading poet, though not for beginners.

Songs and Stories of the Ghouls

Those interested in mythology and political poetry will find something of note here, but most will find this collection of little merit. Not Notley's best work.
