WEDDING NIGHT OF A NUN by Lynne Lawner

WEDDING NIGHT OF A NUN

KIRKUS REVIEW

These poems make a pleasant appearance on the page and their rhyme scheme and rhythms often have the restless but controlled flow of good poetry. The themes, however, are often adolescent and the images uninspired or unfortunate. The many love poems are full of flat physical terms or personal sexual references, not quite translated into the universals of poetry. These are the kinds of poems most good poets-in-the-making (which Miss Lawner may be) generally write and discard. At this stage they need work and a maturity of emotional approach; they are too often embarrassing in their raw intimacy and some simply bad lines.
