The Hatch

?I will do such things,? King Lear shouts before the storm, ?What they are, yet I know not: but they shall be / The terrors of the earth.? Drawing upon Edmund Burke?s definition of the sublime?the odd beauty associated with fear and self-preservation; our astonished delight in what destroys, what overpowers and compels us toward darkness?these strange poems mine the siniste ?I will do such things,? King Lear shouts before the storm, ?What they are, yet I know not: but t...

    I received a copy of these poems from #netgalley in exchange for my review. If you enjoy writing that?s described as ?a fever dream,? then these poems are for you. The language builds arresting and often disturbing or grotesque images. As well as that was done, however, I found t...

    DNF @ 24% therefore, I won't be giving this any star rating. I like poetry, and I like horror. This wasn't at all what I was expecting, it seemed like random nonsensical ramblings by someone who's swallowed a dictionary. I'm not sure how important a characters breath stench is wh...

    A strange and beautiful book. I don't recommend bingeing this brief collection before bed--or maybe I do. ...

    This collection is an ambitious mixture of prose and poetry, and the prose definitely outshines the poetry. I found the flash fiction title piece to be stunning, but sadly most of the poetry seemed to just be lists of images the author thought might seem uncanny but fell short. Asi...

    This book of poetry/Prose/Flash Fiction is way before it's time, to fully appreciate this work you need to be living in a dystopian future where the survivors are few, buildings are in ruin and people are a little bit mad. If you live in that future then great, start reading this book,...

    *I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review* I?m a massive fan of Edgar Allen Poe so when this poetry collection was compared to his I knew i just had to pick it up however, I didn?t enjoy this poetry collecti...

    I didn't originally intend to read this, but it being Halloween month I was intrigued by the idea of a darker poetry. I wanted to be spooked, but wasn't in the right mood for a full-blown story. I hoped that 'The Hatch' would provide me with something a bit different, and in that respe...

    I received this one for review from NetGalley. My rating is closer to a 3.5 than a 4 but Goodreads doesn't allow for 1/2 stars. I don't claim to have any understanding of poetry at all and I feel like that really impacted my ability to enjoy this collection. There were so many p...

    I requested this because I haven't read poetry in a long time and I thought the fact that this was mixed with horror would be a good reintroduction to reading poetry. However, I couldn't really get onboard with this. But I'll start with a positive as say what wonderfully creepy cover a...

    Lovely, introspective poetry. Words that come to my mind to describe the poems are ?moody, rich, and atmospheric.? There were poems that mused over life, family, and little moments. My favorites were the character study poems, such as Wayne or Lenora at the Window. Other poems that...

    I said it before and I'm saying it again - poetry is a complex genre to review. But I saw this and it looked interesting - a collection of poems with horror undertone? Yes, please. However, upon receiving an ARC, I realized it wasn't for me - at all. Poetry is very subjective in it's n...

    I breezed through this horror anthology quickly and blissfully. Each poem withstands on its own and gives off their fair share of creeps. This collection is one of those that you truly have to focus on to get the full effect that they try to evoke. Thank you Netgalley and Brooklyn ...

    I got a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I requested this book because I wanted to try something different. I've read poetry before but this one I felt like some of the poems I just couldn't get into. I had a couple of favorite ones that I really en...
