Just holding the book and flipping through it is a pleasant experience. I like the choice of fonts for everything, and the style of the art is appealing. It fits the subject matter perfectly. One of my favorites is the one for "Beneath the Surface."
I felt it as an interplay of light and dark and shadow in the changing moods--and the book does indeed run a gamut of moods. Most of it is very earnest and serious, even in the light, but there was humor, too. I chuckled over "Prince Charming." I've met a frog or two myself.
I especially admired the careful construction of the book:
* The way it faces a poem in English with its French Patois version
* The way it heightens contrast in facing poems such as "I Will Not" and "Looking into Your Eyes" or "The Wild Stallion" and "The Tamed Stallion"
* The way it uses facing poems to extend the mood, as in "The Wait" and "Still Waiting"
Sometimes the thoughts in the poems seem to be my own thoughts, as in "A Thought." I've thought those very same things. A truly powerful poet makes us feel part of the universal, and Esther certainly does. Her poems collectively stirred almost forgotten feelings and moments from my past.
