Friedberg - Would You Be Made Whole (small-front-c by gfriedberg

A collection of my poems has been published and is available from Amazon, the publisher, et c.  The poems don't comprise a sequence (the format I usually write in), but instead all have in common that they are 'bastard' sonnets -- 'unruly' is how I more politely refer to them.

By whatever name, they're more-or-less-lax exemplars of the old form, mostly dispensing with strict meter and end-rhyme, mostly observant in the matters of length, tone, and spirit:  lyrical miniature essays, in other words, with close attention paid to every one of the 140 syllables!  The one entitled "Sonnetoid Manifesto" attempts to justify the liberties I take with the form.

I've arranged them, approximately, by principal theme -- likely not the most exciting order, but how to determine what the 'optimal' (i e, for the reader first encountering them, most exciting?) order might be? 

The 'blurbs' recommending the collection (you can read them on Amazon's page for the book) are very 'pithy', exceptionally so, I think, and I'm very grateful to Lee Gould, Lloyd Schwartz, and Nick Barnes for them.…
