Any woman who has ever been in love with another woman absolutely must read this book. Anyone who believes form in poetry trite will be changed by this book and by Hacker's poetry in general. I have heard Hacker read her work; each word is not merely tasted, but savored in her mouth. This book will reveal layers of flavor to you if you give it the same attentiveness.
Plus, it's real hott sometimes, too View 1 comment. Dec 05, Tyler rated it it was amazing. Hacker cuts to the quick of it here, capturing love and loss as it occurs in the heat of the moment. One gets the sense that each poem was written breathlessly, in the wake of some intense emotion or another. In a way, the cycle is a long string of "morning-afters" a year of them, in fact - in which the entirety of a beautiful and flawed relationship is captured and distilled. There's an immediacy here that's lacking in most poetry I've read and just for the record, the final poem in this Hacker cuts to the quick of it here, capturing love and loss as it occurs in the heat of the moment.
There's an immediacy here that's lacking in most poetry I've read and just for the record, the final poem in this sonnet cycle is unbelievable. Jan 08, Alice rated it it was amazing. The rise and fall of a love affair, one poem at a time. This is simply a beautiful work of art. May 14, Nicola rated it really liked it. Overall, a good primer on how to reinvent form, feminism, writing about eros. She will definitely make you blush! Sep 10, John Vanderslice rated it it was amazing.
This is my favorite book by Hacker. She long ago has proven herself a master at using forms, and breathing new life into them, in this present era of free verse. And LDCS is my favorite book by her. These sonnets are smart, funny, passionate extremely passionate , and amazingly supple. The way in which she is able to make rhymes sound perfectly natural, even casual, is astounding. I read this book along with my class in a course I was teaching called Sonnet Writing Workshop. There is so much to This is my favorite book by Hacker. There is so much to learn about the form from reading this book.
She's a master. Just to be able to examine each poem for what rhyme scheme she employs, where she uses off-rhyme, how she plays with off-rhyme is worth the price of the book. But you don't have to read it that way at all if you don't want to. You can just kick back and zoom through the whole sequence, reading it as a novel in sonnets, which is how the book is often described.
It certainly tells a story. And it's one you will be thoroughly entertained by. Personally, I think this is book is a must read for anyone claiming to like poetry. One of the best books of poetry published in the last forty years. Apr 10, Grace rated it it was ok Shelves: poetry , read.
There's a raw honesty in Hacker's poems. Vivid imagery was also incorporated. Vivid and really intimate scenes, but after reading ten, twenty of them, it lost its novelty for me and my interest; hence, the two stars.

May 06, Tanneke Zeeuw rated it really liked it. Read this as I was coming out, writing poetry myself and formulating how I wanted to live as a feminist. Some stanzas still echo in my head today. Love, Death and the Changing of the Seasons is my first taste of Hacker, as a young lesbian exploring sapphic poetry and literature.
Her sonnets are wonderfully sensual and frank and it was as though I could feel her aching through the pages. Hacker captures the love, death and the changing of the "seasons" of a passionate relationship openly and beautifully. Mar 29, Suzanne Stroh rated it it was amazing Shelves: erotica , top-shelf , by-the-bedside , poetry.
A poetic masterpiece, simply a tour de force by a fiercely intelligent, sensitive poet who set out to write a novel in poetry. Then she decided to make things a little harder. How about doing it in sonnets? Shakespeare never tried that! And guess what? These sonnets are perfect. All of them. And they flow like a river. And like the river flowing to the sea, the narrative deepens. The voices of the characters emerge.

If you are into Indian poetry check out this volume. Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase. I enjoy reading poetry from all over the world and this is the first time I have had the pleasure of reading poems and songs from India. I found this to be a wonderful collection of poetry from Indian poets.
These poems are taken from poets from the fifth century BC to the twentieth century. They are spiritual but also full of desire, and passionate erotic longing. Being Indian in theme these songs, stories and poems relate to Krishna, Shiva and Goddesses. Do not pass up the introduction by Eliot Weinberger as he explains about the nature of Indian poetry themes. The end of the book has a short biography of each poet. If you are interested in Indian prose and poetry you may want to check out this excellent collection of poems.
