Ascending Into Euphoria by Tiffany Tinney

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Tinney’s slim collection of poetry is divided into poems of the heart, of nature, of her thoughts, and then a potluck category. I’m no expert on poetry. For me, some of the poems seem elegantly simple, while others seem amateurishly plain. Some of Tinney’s writings whimsically interpret life situations in a different light…as I thought poetry was meant to do. I liked her comparison of friends to autumn leaves. It’s difficult to like or dislike poems dealing with her own relationships. Readers, like me, may feel that revelations about her virginity and intimate moments are not the stuff of poetry. Or, maybe her words don’t convey her emotion meaningfully. Tinney’s writing may benefit from maturity and practice? There is a notation that the writing covers a span of time from age 14 thru 25. The cover picture and colors are very attractive.

    I absolutely love the cover of this book, though I am in no way a fan of poetry. This is probably a book that I'd rate low as well. Poetry doesn't always speak to me, and sometimes poems seem like they have absolutely no point when they are over simplified. It's such a shame that a cover so beautiful doesn't go with a book that seems that enjoyable.
