beginnings selected verse Reviews
Poetry is a form of expression that not only moves in fashions, but has the uncanny ability to affect the human experience in such a unique way that no other art form can even begin to approach. This collection of poetry from Benbo Smith is no exception to this. There is a studied precision with which Smith wields his pen, choosing to utilise elegant phrasing that doesn’t waste words and isn’t overburdened by flowery imagery. Each word is fit to purpose and compliments the theme of each poem. One element of this collected works that worked exceptionally well it the use of footnotes by Smith. Though he has carefully chosen his words, he does not expect all of his audience will have ever come across some of the more regional dialects that he has drawn from and so provides explanation or definition of these words, including the dialect they are taken from.This volume is so filled with wonderful words that it is impossible to sit and simply read through each poem and put the book down after half an hour. Each poem deserves the attention of reading at least once with ample time allowed to digest before reading a second time. The works contained within Beginnings are refreshing look at the world that we as humans inhabit and the emotional experience of different aspects of life. Tired Life Retired is one poem that is particularly poignant. It not only speaks to those who have passed through life and reached a point where they have become tired of life, but also to those who are much younger and now live in a perpetual state of exhaustion with no end in sight. It reaches those feelings that are formed from stress and pressures of time and feeling so worn down that the magic of life has seeped away.This is a wonderful collection of poems that is sure to delight poetry readers and even create some new converts to the art form.
I’ve always been interested in poetry; however, a collection of poems has never affected me as much as Beginnings did. Smith’s poetry doesn’t sugar-coat the way the world works, his words are gritty, honest and incredibly powerful. Throughout the verses, Smith shares political, social and economic views that inspire thought and discussion. The precision and careful choice of wording showcases Smith’s incredible talent and each poem is delivered to the reader with a powerful punch. I particularly liked that Smith’s poetry doesn’t follow any specific format and can at times be quite jarring to read. This added an interesting dimension when reading and felt in keeping with the topic of conversation. Whilst Smith uses German, Scottish and other regional dialect throughout his poetry, he doesn’t assume that readers will understand and his addition of footnotes was particularly helpful when reading.Whilst I’m sure a lot of the references will have gone over my head due to my lack of knowledge and/or intellect, I really enjoyed reading this poetry collection and would highly recommend it to everybody, whether you’re interested in poetry or not – Beginnings will give you plenty of food for thought and Benbo Smith is definitely somebody to watch.
