Review - Works, by Bark

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 25, 2014, 12:53 PM


Product Thumbnail.php by Bark
There's not actually much I can say. These words have to speak for themselves, and they do. Bark is good at that. 

The description is accurate: "A collection of free verse poetry with a dash of prosetry; dark, humorous, bizarre and surreal." Ray's writing is exquisite and evocative, with every word perfectly chosen. The tone alternates between black humor and profound sorrow, reflecting the sometimes dismal absurdity of existence.
Beautiful words, and thought-provoking.

That said, I do not recommend "Works" for the overly-sensitive. These verses are raw and intense, and to appreciate them fully, you have to enjoy pain in your beauty, a scalpel among the lilies.

Do pick up a copy. I've heard it's currently on sale!

I have always believed that the best way to know a writer is through his works. I could fill this space with facts and numbers - height, weight, age, siblings, career, education - but the most important facts of my existence are completely nonexistent. I live in the worlds I have created, and I give them expression through words.

My first and greatest passion is the crafting of words, and it has always been so. I have been writing stories since I first learned to wield a pen, and before that I told them to anyone who would listen. These stories are the sum of my days on this planet, coloured and flavoured with my experiences and dreams.

Treat them kindly and criticise them when they need it; they are my children.

~*I critique prose, with emphasis on characterization and mechanics. Note me with a link. Tips are appreciated. ;) *~

Angling for an extended premium and some art commissions, and I'm not ashamed to ask for help. :)
Donors get a llama and a look through their galleries, faves distributed at my discretion.

Send me a note to request a commission. I am willing to discuss writing commissions, but I am very selective in my acceptances. Do not ask me to write anything that would require a mature tag.
