News Image

Beverley Rose Enright has been an accomplished artist, poet, editor and educator for several years now. For any ordinary woman, these are more than enough for one lifetime. However, Enright is far from ordinary. She does not rest on her laurels and constantly looks for creative avenues to share her message and masterpieces to the world. Now, Enright exhibits her own anthology of literary masterpieces in her newly published poetry book, titled Lucky Icons.

“The poems herein are breathtaking in their variety, ranging in form from traditional verse of every sort, to free and experimental; in scope from lament for extinct birds; to protest poems; to lyrical beauty; to deeply felt religious subjects; and most of all, to even more deeply felt family poems,” says Jacqueline Jackson. “Humor is not omitted. It is hard to characterize this collection as a whole, but perhaps love and passionate caring best typifies it.”

Enright has won numerous awards for her artwork, and while employed at Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin, she edited and contributed to a quarterly publication of poetry entitled The Iron Bridge. Her poems have appeared in The Kent Quarterly, Point of View, A Milestone Sampler from Lotus Press, Pulpsmith, and she also co-edited Nous, a literary quarterly. However, only recently has she fulfilled this lifelong dream of publishing her own work, which has been pushed to the sidelines for decades.

With varied themes and Enright’s love and passionate caring stringing them together, Lucky Icons holds in its coffers numerous literary treasures waiting for readers to discover them. Once discovered, every poem will gift its readers with an insightful reflection or a valuable lesson that can last a lifetime.
