Mini Review: Horoscopes for the Dead by Billy Collins

Horoscopes for the Dead by Billy Collins


Another lovely collection by one of my favorite poets. Collins has a way of making the ordinary seem a little more meaningful, a little magical, even if there is a hint of melancholy that can be found in so much of his work. Some of my favorites in this book are: Genesis, Cemetery Ride, Horoscopes for the Dead, Her, Gold, Flaneur, The Chairs that No One Sits In, and Drawing You from Memory.

If you are reluctant to read poetry, considering it a little pretentious or inaccessible, I think Collins would be a really good place to start:)
