    1. Hawksley Burns for Isadora was beautiful and haunting. It's a very small book, with strange illustrations (not my favorites, but maybe they're more impressive in their original form, rather than reprinted - it just looks kind of drab on the page), but it takes a long time to read. You have to savor it. You can't just fly through, because a speed-read will render the poetic meaning insensible - you have to digest each letter. I read three or four in a sitting. These are absolutely beautiful, and [...]


    2. I didn't absolutely love every poem so I wont give it 5 stars, but, damn, Hawksley, you've pretty much ruined me for any man or woman out there. How much do I wish someone out there was so inspired to write such beautiful love poems to me? "Let us kiss while spider's tongues twist to taste our toes""Can we be wooden wheels splintering on this rocky route?" "Well let me say this: there looks as if there might be a good reason to melt spoons into bullets, to pull together the armour, or better yet [...]


    3. As the book jacket states, not quite poetry and not quite prose—but these are love letters written for a woman whom Workman obviously cares deeply and loves passionately. Whether Isadora is real or not, who’s to say? The meaning behind Workman’s words speak enough to his readers. Some of these letters twinkle with nature romanticism, and others dazzle with fruit eroticism. These letters are paired beautifully with the black-and-white feminine images painted by Beverly Workman.


    4. It's one thing to listen to Hawksley Workman's music, but a totally different and wonderful experience to read his writing. This book was my early introduction to what I guess you could consider prose poetry, but it goes beyond both genres and into something lush that feels like someone is whispering the words into your ear.


    5. a book of love letters from hawksley to his mermaid-muse. accompanied by paintings by his mother, beverley hawksley. beautiful beautiful beautiful. "isadora,how can you be so patient with me? i will open wide. trust that i will open wide enough to drink you into my guts. how can i be lost in this muck? you've spread your love so fair and true before me"


    6. Occasionally beautiful, but might have been better if it was at all comprehensible.The artwork was pretty, though.



    7. There are many beautiful phrases and ideas in Workman's prose-poetry, but the cumulative effect of his language was lacking for me.
