Shards by Francesca Albini

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Shards is a meditative sequence of prose-poems. The idea is that life is like a broken vase, with every piece of glass reflecting light in its own way. The writing has a loose, sometimes Zen-like, rhythm and flavour, and the book taps into a varied background, bringing together images from different worlds and experiences. Shards deals with identity, memory and consciousness, with the blurred line between reality and reverie, in an immediate style that appeals also to the reader who finds traditional poetry too distant.
