In his second book from Casa de Snapdragon, Charles Adès Fishman focuses entirely on women — their memories, dreams, griefs, triumphs, and visions. In the Language of Women honors women’s lives and frees the voices of those who have found it difficult, if not impossible, to address actions and events that have wounded and transformed them. It is also a book of fifty-two unforgettable poems in which the distinctive journeys of more than thirty women have been rescued from oblivion and brought to vivid life.
This is a collection of poems that lifts up women and lets the reader know what being a woman is all about.
The poems are written in categories such as Forgotten Songs, Distances from Heaven and A lost Language.
They are about faith, forgiveness, sorrow, joy etc. They are all beautiful and the most interesting thing about them is that they’re written by a man. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves poetry.
