World enraptured, most disconsolate prose poems. I read Just Kids , now I needPatti.Update I finished reading The coral sea a few days ago I read it in spanish I was beautiful and poetic, but hardly a story.It s not like I expected it to be one, but it surprised me for the best how each chapter was a beautiful piece of art in itself.You could read them separately and you would still get the most inspired and inspiring images.I reacomend it as a poetry book, not a follow up to We were kids Pattis Smith s previously released book on her relationship with late photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. A perda enquanto temperatura Enquanto n o apenas frio Enquanto coisa quente, na verdade Pelo menos, na mestria humanista de Patti Smith. This is a most beautiful book, perfect in its own way, Patti Smith s poetic elegy for her friend, onetime lover and soulmate Robert Mapplethorpe, interspersed with a selection of his photographs, like meditations As a writer, I m in awe The prologue sets the tone and the scene, with Morpheus, from a place apart regarding his charge a young man asleep within the cloth of a voyage, which is turning, ever so slowly, even as the widening skirt of an ecstatic. The title piece, a long prose poem, was written in 1996 after the death of Patti Smith s dear friend, the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe This 2012 reissue includes some other poems for him, and a preface he asked her to write for his book, Flowers.It s the most exquisite and moving work The use of language is extraordinary heightened and unusual, yet at the same time clear and straightforward A paradox There is nothing self consciously writerly about it rather she is making art, and does so by finding the perfect words to convey her friend s last journey, and something of his soul.A slim volume, beautifully produced, it includes some of his photos and some of her own It s unique It s a treasure a work of great beauty.I can see myself returning to it often.She recounts that he asked her, when he was dying, to write their story She eventually did the acclaimed memoir, Just Kids but it took her a long time to be able to do it Meanwhile she wrote The Coral Sea. What a touching way to cope with the parting of a beloved person If I knewabout the Mapplethorpe s background, I think I would understand some of the references better but still, those were some amazing prose poems Everyone who reads this, I presume, secretly wishes that they will lead such a life, and that they will touch other people s lives in such a way, that they will one day become the subjects of a similarly moving and sensitive literary homage. Absolutely beautiful.I think, having recently read Just Kids and knowing a little about her story and Robert s it was evenpoignant.I borrowed this book from the library, but will be buying several copies one for myself and a few for gifts Ms Smith s writing consistently liquefies me.For example, from The Pedestal pg 56 Such tears filled him with revulsion No one could enter a soul composed of tears, for one would surely drown.I recommend this without reservation to anyone who enjoys words that paint pictures. I really like this book specially after reading Just kids and listen to her music. Review to come.
