Book Reviews

I tend to approach books of poetry with a bit of trepidation, knowing that the poet’s soul lies bare within the pages of their collections. I wasn’t sure what I would find in The Lament or how I would write a positive review if I didn’t enjoy or relate to the work. But I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised with this author. The Lament (Selected Poems and Prose) is insightful; beautiful and emotional; intense yet humble. Ercell H. Hoffman understands the human condition and is able to put into words the feelings most of us are unable to articulate. I especially liked The Birth of a Poem. I will proudly keep this volume alongside more prominent poets. If you enjoy poetry, I highly recommend The Lament.
