Of Childhood, Gifted Days, and Loneliness: A Gathering of Tribes Reviews Beaumont

Burning of the three fires book photo Jeanne Marie Beaumont's book, The Burning of the Three Fires, was recently reviewed by Robert Mueller for A Gathering of the Tribes.  Mueller addresses the poems  in an interesting and insightful, if esoteric, way, highlighting the recurring theme of childhood and other associated themes, like those of leaving and loneliness.  All poems discussed in his review are tied to "childhood and childhood and childhood," from dolls and this "self-fashioning related to childhood" to "having a thing for toys, trinkets and trimmings." He leaves the reader with this: "And for blessings of construction and of happiness, yes go read this book.  You may find what more there is to stay." The whole review can be read here: http://www.tribes.org/web/2011/03/02/some-thoughts-on-burning-of-the-three-fires-by-jeanne-marie-beaumont/
