Perspectives: Sonnets and Verse in English and Spanish

Poetry is among the loveliest forms of expression. It exhibits ferocity, vulnerability, softness, pain, and more in the most implicit yet explicit ways possible. Poetry books aim to converse with their readers and make them feel exactly how the beauty of words is supposed to make them feel. Poems set off a magical connection that is often misunderstood by many.

It’s indeed a challenge to create such a work of art without keeping the readers confused. Perspectives by Glade A. Myler succeeds in doing so and offers us a deep escape filled with wonders and experiences, allowing us to reflect on life. Wisdom is easily accessed through Myler’s work, and it is what makes his piece a beautiful one. It is a must-read for people seeking answers through someone else’s eyes! The writer has stated in his literature that he desires for the book to be a journey for the reader as well.  He wants them to recognize they are not alone just by simply reading the poems.

Perspectives: Sonnets and Verse in English and Spanish
This book is a new experience in poetry with Spanish and English poems of varying themes and sizes, but with many sonnets. The sonnet form has not been used much in recent years but has again surfaced as a succinct way to express oneself poetically. Although these sonnets are not exactly like the ones of old of Elizabethan and Italian forms, they are an experiment in fourteen-line verse for our day.
