Lullaby for Sinners [ePub]

by Kate Braverman

This is a very early book in Braverman's career arc...she really plumped it out at 110 pages, and to do so she even (unwisely) drew upon work she had published in college journals (obvious juvenilia) and as a result this ends up being a very uneven collection in terms of quality. Many of these earlier poems have many dead lines and beg pruning terribly...others just beg euthanasia. The attempt to be Sylvia Plath ruins numerous poems; she only succeeds at being a mediocre Plath epigonus. But there are a handful of truly strong poems which are worth reading and adding to some future Kate Braverman Reader. These include poems like "Two and One Half Years Ago," "The Last of the Line," and "For My Unborn Daughter."Maybe poetry was just a brief foray for this author who is now a celebrated novelist/short story writer.
