    Not my cup of tea. I could appreciate some of Prikryl's clever language and there were a few poems that seemed to have some life to them, but overall I just found these boring and generally "trying too hard." *Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC, provided by the author and/or the publis...

    ?Now begins to rise in me the familiar rhythm; words that have lain dormant now lift, now toss their crests, and fall and rise, and falls again. I am a poet, yes. Surely I am a great poet.? ? Virginia Woolf, The Waves No Matter by Jana Prikryl is the poet's second full-l...

    This is one of the best collections of poetry I've ever read. They are by no means easy or accessible poems to read, but they reward so much on the re-reading. Digging into this particular collection forced me to read poetry in a whole new, almost meditative way. I could sit for a few ...

    Epic Your friends of friends in the city seduce each other in the strong light of their ambition by reading long chapters of long books to each other not seeing, in bed with this poem that two chapters want repetition as though by the guy who made Rome: You go Book I, II,...

    Not accessible or meaningful to a casual reader of poetry. And not exciting or challenging enough to want to know more. My thanks to First to Read for a ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. ...

    I received a copy of No Matter by Jana Prikryl from First to read in exchange for an honest review. I can't really give an opinion on this book because I did not realize that it was a book of poetry when I signed up for it. I am really not that into poetry. I did not understand the boo...

    I started reading No Matter by Jana Prikryl not knowing at all what to expect. What I did not want was more poetry of heartbreak. I wanted poetry that worked with language not only to connect with the reader, but also to absolutely confuse them. Jana Prikryl does just this, and I canno...

    I enjoy poetry in its many creative forms of expression. Some is easily read, some takes some work to understand, and some just give me a headache! Unfortunately, for me, this collection falls in the last category I mentioned. Thanks to NetGalley and Crown Publishing for allowing me...

    I am not an avid poetry reader, so this was just too abstract for me and I struggled to find meaning in the poems. I struggled with reviewing this book because poetry speaks to different people in different ways. Ultimately, though, it wasn't my cup of tea. Disclosure: I received a ...

    I would like to thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for my advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. This collection of poems brings cityscapes to life. Emotions and the nature of a city can mimic each other - who would've thought The poems ooze th...

    Reading this I shared the experience of the poet: Got off a stop early but no harm, A pleasant walk. This is a different place. The fragmentary observations and poignant visions in this book carried me to "the shores of speculation" (p. 15), but the riddles and shards ultimatel...

    this collection was really impressive. it?s like a landscape where the medium is poetry. prikryl did a fantastic job of capturing urban environments, especially in the ?waves? poems. not just the physicality of it, but the way people are here. her ?anonymous? poems describing...

    There is a lot to love about No Matter. Jana Prikryl shares intimate and intricate verses. I love how sometimes the titles lead in as the first lines and how not all of the poems look and feel the same. There is freedom in these poems, as well as description and imagery. ...
