Broken Silence by Gennaro Episcopo

3 Stars

A  poetry collection that states it focuses on those moments of silents that reveal more than we realize, however whilst reading a different aspect comes to mind. Written in style like a form of therapeutic muses there is a strong focus on loneliness and feelings of low self-esteem. The collection as a whole could easily resemble one persons journey, with various poems following on in theme and subject.

There is a rapid pace to the collection, due to a mixture of short and shorter length poems. There is room for expansion with some pieces and those poems that are more expansive stand out greatly.

The grasp of the sentiment of isolation provides an interesting backdrop for a fast paced collection of poetry.   An  encouraging book for an author with the ability to further develop.
