Description

It feels weird that Bless the Daughter Raised by a Voice in Her Head is Warsan Shire's first full-length poetry collection. Regarding the physical structure of the poems themselves, Shire doesn’t use forms that could further the feelings she’s attempting to disseminate through her poems’ content. In “Bless the Daughter Raised by a Voice in Her Head,” Shire boldly weaves together a narrative of what it means to be displaced, disconnected from home, and incredibly vulnerable.

Imagine coming up with this : an animal standing on hind legs pretending to understand why it must die.I’m sure I didn’t like the book as much as other readers, because I’m not that good in English, but I still enjoyed it to some extent. So, if you wanna give Warsan Shire a shot (which I'd highly recommend), I'd say read Teaching My Mother How To Give Birth first.

Only then does Shire provide her readers with several jarring accounts of violence, evoking more visceral reactions.

The long-awaited collection from one of our most exciting contemporary poets is a blessing, an incantatory celebration of survival. Bless the Daughter Raised by a Voice in Her Head tackles many of the same themes as her previous work, with the same striking verse we’ve come to expect from her. Bless the Daugher is a collection of a more mature author, the poems are connected through themes and characters, the poems seem more thought out.

This fierce and compelling book of poems should come with a warning label: These poems will break your heart. The influential and reworked poem ‘HOME’ lays bare the fallacy and social predicament of refugees; do they enter the western world to freedom? While she does provide a glossary for the terms, having to jump back and forth while actively reading can generate a disconnect for certain readers. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.With her first full-length, poetry collection, Bless the Daughter Raised by a Voice In Her Head, Warsan Shire electrifies.

Aside from this poem, though, Shire doesn’t lean into such experimentation with shape and form in a way that enriches the poems’ contents. Positioning one above the other, Shire connects the sentiments of “I was an ugly child” to the sorrowful tale of when a mother “left the house and took her shoes.
