Filled with integrity, interest, and prose, Ergon takes you through life’s beginnings, travels, and finality.

George S. Singer has filled his debut poetry collection with several different phases of life. There is coming of age descriptions as well as transitional life periods.  However, Ergon doesn’t just discuss life’s phases, but also delves into daily routines for different aspects of life.  One of which is life in a Buddhist monastery.  Each poem has depth and also sparks a bit of thought from the reader.

I truly enjoyed this collection. To be honest, I haven’t reviewed much in the way of poetry.  However, Singer makes it very easy to read and comprehend what he is talking about.  It is very lyrical and flows throughout the book.  Even though the poems are not necessarily in a reader’s chronological order, it is still easy to picture the meaning of each poem.

However, there is a bit of harsh language throughout this collection. I don’t recommend this to YA fans of poetry.  However, any mature audience should find this collection enjoyable.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Poetic Book Tours in exchange for an honest and thorough review. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
