“Life Through My Glasses: Collected Poems, 1950–2011” (published by Trafford Publishing), a new collection of poems by Herbert Siegel, combines two additional art forms for added dimension and meaning, resulting in a unique approach, more functional than poetic icons of earlier eras.
“Life Through My Glasses” is Siegel’s fourth collection, presenting a contemporaneously written continuum of life ensconced in many forms of poetry, including universal observations of nature, ancient storytellers, gastronomy and biographies –usually ending with a touch of sardonic humor.
What others are saying about “Life Through My Glasses”:
"…Siegel's book contains poetry written in various formats. He experiments with the Japanese haiku, senryu, and tanka and masterfully constructs a triptych with the title piece in the collection. The bulk of his work, though, is in the style of rhymed verse popularized by poets such as Edgar Guest...True to the definition of a poet laureate, he is also unafraid to comment on current events and political figures in his verse. Yet like most accomplished poets he is a keen observer of the natural world and prone to introspection and philosophy. It is evident that some of the pieces in this collection were written merely to amuse the author and his readers, but a few such as ‘Pay Me No Mind’ border on the sublime."
“Life Through My Glasses” has been awarded the Gold Seal Award of Literary Excellence by Trafford Publishing.
