    Rusty Morrison Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The True Keeps Calm Biding Its Story book, this is one of the most wanted Rusty Morrison author readers around the world.


    All of the lines in this poem end with one of the following end words please, advise, stop and sometimes please advise Stop appears with the most frequency about 2 3rds of the time After the first several pages, I stopped reading the end words, but I knew they were there ghosted in my field of vision like an anchor, or an apparition, or a lump in the throat you try to ignore In his blurb on the back of the book, Peter Gizzi suggests that Morrison launches line after line toward a potentially inf [...]

    compelling and brilliant, Morrison uses language in ways uniquely her own Disclosure on a blind reading of manuscripts, I chose her next book not yet published at the time I write this for Tupelo s Dorset prize When I found out who the winning author was, I laughed out loud, remembering how this earlier book had won me over as I read it in ever increasing amazement at the sheer versatility and intelligence of what Morrison builds These are not standard diction lyric poems, yet they function as l [...]

    i am completely fascinated with how rusty s endwords function for me at first they drew all my attention, then they began to cast a kind of spell then they became almost a force to be resisted then they seemed to disappear and then the surged to the forefront again, with a kind of dazzling power of inevitability or something amazing.

    I m going to let you know now, that I am simply uploading parts of a reflection I wrote about this book for a class These are my opinions and it is my paper The True Keeps Calm Biding Its Story has many layers of structure, and understanding Firstly, all of the poems are entitled please advise stop, all of the lines end with one or two of these words, and each poem ends with please advise Secondly, everything is in multiples of three, three lines a stanza, three stanza a poem, six poems a sectio [...]

    the true keeps calm biding its story is a pleasure, its subtle movements against the refrain and structure of the telegram s insistence both holding and pushing outward Following the poem s grief, voicing itself in the repetitions of please advise stop moving from line to line and page to page, I found myself moving there, too, along that current or cry, that longing, seeking like the lines, some clarity, compassion, some certainty The word please insistent and despairing all at once a balancing [...]

    I found this alternately great and disappointing The language and juxtaposition of images is GREAT The subject matter is the speaker s grief over her father s death, which I didn t have enough patience for Her pov is detached, dissociated, depresses, and or less completely unable to deal with his loss, so everything becomes an aphorism to be telegraphed back to society reality, of which the speaker has no part because she s isolated herself so completely She s essentially catatonic All she does [...]

    There are so many memorable lines that seem to get in the way of trying to be clever What am I missing The entire please stop advise series where every line ends in one of those words drove me nuts When I re read the entire book without the false enforced rhythm of the endings I really enjoyed some of the poems as incomprehensible as they were This might have worked for one or two poems but for the theme that carries the 72 pages of the book it breached my well of patience Again, a James Laughli [...]

    I m working on this.When it comes to poems, I m a dummy I like easy ones Which is not to say I won t try hard ones, but I am lazy So this is at first a little over my head It might be impolite or sacrilegious to read them out of order but I m looking for something to latch on to, and I find suddenly references to a father s death And now I can start to be subjective about the poems and claim them a little as something I might be able to understand Reading others reviews of the book here, it s in [...]

    This is an incredible book, perhaps the best I ve read this year so far In the first poem the water puddle sways like an earthbound kite stop and a million other ways that she is held down while time, her father, her understanding all move away from her, in steep single point perspective.My enthusiasm lessened near the end of the collection, whether because of the writing or a lapse in my reading I don t know.

    Read this aloud, Esme bouncing around us repeating, Please advise stop Please advise stop Much to love here It amazes me especially that this form works, the repetition of those words at the ends of lines Each line a marvel.

    This book was sent to me since I am a member of the Society of American poets It is an interesting book of poetry This book is the winner of the James Laughlin award for poetry,

    A brilliant book I can t stop thinking about Morrison s gift for translating loss is unlike anything I ve ever read.

    Some nice lines but no coherence Ending every line with stop, please or please advise a moderately interesting failure in form.
