Review of ‘Speak Heart, make them hear’

Posted on Updated on

Books of poetry are hard to review, because poetry is so subjective. What resonates with one reader leaves the next cold. Furthermore, when poems have been translated from another language, often something is lost. Speak Heart, Make them hear by Charly Wilde is a collection of love poems by a Bulgarian poet who is a bestseller in her own country. Based upon her own personal experiences, these short verses capture the angst and beauty of love, fulfilled and unfulfilled most effectively.

Interesting imagery and excellent use of the language. Kudos to the poet and the translator.

I received a free copy of this book. I give it four stars.
