    1. Often poems are consumed one at a time, online, but Waiting for Bluebeard demonstrates how that old fashioned thing a collection possesses a special value.Poems may make sense when gathered up together This is both true and false in Helen Ivory s case Despite the extreme simplicity, the pared down quality of her work, there is something consistently odd oblique about the world she evokes It s like reading work in a foreign language, which superficially resembles English and having to get by wit [...]

    2. Omgomgomg omgomgomg This has got to be the coolest book of poetry I have ever read It was creepy, it was haunting, it was creepy, it was beautiful, it was creepy Did I mention creepy Amazing I loved it.

    3. I must say it was very difficult to pick 10 favorites as is my policy Such excellence demanded I select The ordinary in this collection becomes extraordinary and the extraordinary utterly marvelous The reader is transported to places familiar and alien, where he or she has possibly never been or would care to be These visits are not always comfortable and who would desire them to be The family tree explored in these pages has thorns and brittle limbs as well as the occasional blossom The title [...]

    4. You must read this collection front to back, no flitting about It will make sense if you do Sense that is distorted though and that is what I love about Helen Ivory s work You can see reality peeping through, but it is surrounded by a sense of wonder and magic This collection is dark and rich and rather creepy, but sad and uncomfortable and tense There is a sense of inevitability about the life of the woman living in Bluebeard s house that her childhood has lead her straight to Bluebeard s fron [...]

    5. Helen Ivory s exquisite use of language inspired me to improve my own writing I m not a poet but it made me want to hone my writing skills and use of language to make it as beautiful, as magical and at times as challenging as I possibly can The collection challenged me It is very dark in places and very personally exposing of female despair and pain, but it is brilliant exactly because of that It is a collection that I think will stand the test of time and a book to return to.

    6. A wonderful poetry collection by Helen Ivory The transition from childhood to Bluebeard s house had me transfixed The echoes that permeate throughout this are haunting, and deftly woven There are so many layers to peel away at I am sure the richness of these poems, which together form a narrative, will grow ever richer on further readings D

    7. I need to read this again and again Wonderful imagery, language and powerful observations It s hypnotic in a wayking sense at some almost inaccessible level that s deeply satisfying Glad I have found Helen Ivory.
