one more review at Heavy Feather Review for Kristina Marie Darling

 

Assembling in the Margins: The Moon & Other Inventions, by Kristina Marie Darling

The Moon & Other Inventions, by Kristina Marie Darling. Buffalo, New York: BlazeVOX Books, 2012. 66 pages. $12.00, paper.

Joseph Cornell was an American sculptor and a maker of assemblage, a recluse, and according to several biographical sources, rarely left his home in Flushing, New York. During his long career he constructed dozens of ornate boxes that related small narratives between the spaces of reason.

According to the Oxford Dictionary,an assemblage is a collection or gathering of things, but also people. Within the same mindset as Cornell, who collected Victorian imagery with breathtaking vision and clarity, Kristina Marie Darling has collected her own poetic narrative of a young woman and the inventions that preoccupy her attention in the excellent collection of poetry, The Moon and Other Inventions.
