    As if lost in the soft, bewitching world of fairy tale, Maggie Smith conceives and brings forth this metaphysical Baedeker, a guidebook for mother and child to lead each other into a hopeful present Smith s poems affirm the virtues of humanity compassion, empathy, and the ability to comfort one another when darkness falls There is a light, she tells us, and the light is good.

    The title poem came to me through several different vectors, indicating a robust internet presence and I liked it well enough to want to follow up Glad I did Smith s a deceptively simple poet very few lines will make you slow down and the imagery and rhythm are both colloquial What lifts the collection is Smith s complex sense of what it means to be a mother raising children in a world that s at once breathtakingly beautiful and frightening It s a consistent collection so every reader s likely t [...]

    I ve resolved to read at least one book of poems a month in 2018, and I m so glad I started here In this book, Smith gives us reasons, over and over, to love the world even as we know better Good Bones was a breakout hit of the collection, but there s so much here motherhood and perspective and a yearning for goodness when it s so unbearably elusive these days I m so grateful for this book.

    The woman doesn t know how the story ends Like the mountain, it has a shape, but she s too close to see it whole The poem s in Maggie Smith s collection are largely about a mother s desire to protect her daughter from a dangerous world.

    Maggie Smith is an exquisite poet Her words are devastatingly beautiful This collection is my favorite until her next one comes along.

    So good to see some favorites I d read in journals Size Equals Distance, At Your Age I wore a Darkness, Good Bones, to name just a few and to find some new favorites here The poems Heart and Tongue stand out to me right now because they dwell in questions around grief Such a gift, this book.

  8. Mary Cartwright

    Upon receiving my cope of Good Bones, all I knew about Maggie Smith was her poem in which this collection is titled That poem resonated with me on an extremely personal level It is safe to say that personal standards were set before even breaking the spine The first aspect that any reader notices before beginning a novel or collection of poetry is its cover The cover of Good Bones is a striking contrast of dark brown bird wings and stark white background The reader at this point does not know wh [...]

    Enjoyed reading this book which I bought based on her poem Good Bones which went viral very quickly I think the poem came out at a point in time where many were questioning the state of events in our country and feeling very confused and upset Her poem put words so eloquently to our feelings This set of poems is written about or to the writers daughter and it s evident Maggie is very tuned in to her daughter Although the subjects are universal, I think thus book will resonate most closely to par [...]

    What a gorgeous collection of poems Many people may be familiar with the title poem after it went viral, and that is certainly a wonderful one that I love dearly But the collection as a whole is so much Smith looks at fundamental and universal aspects of the human existence change, parenthood, the passage of time, relationship to land and place Over and over again, she shows us the seduction of the beautiful, simple narrative, contrasted with the necessity of engaging with hard truths I love th [...]

    I ve come back to this collection of poems again and again Smith has a way of pulling you into her poems with their conversational musings on everyday, seemingly trivial occurrences and then taking you by surprise with a last line that leaves you breathless with its universal truth This is a beautiful collection and will be relevant to all readers, but has a special place in my teacher and mom heart.

  12. Erica Wright

    Queen of the bittersweet, Maggie Smith captures life s joys and sorrows in equal measure Even the fable entries ring true, their girls with wings important than ever A wonderful way to begin my 2018 reading.

  13. Joe Paris

    The title poem is amazing Google it I like Maggie s style or writing and many of the poems resonated with me As with most poetry collections, some of the content didn t align with my interests, but she s a strong writer and her voice is relevant.
