CHIAROSCURO

 Author:
Mary W. Jensen

Chiaroscuro is a collection of poetry by Mary W. Jensen. The poems are mostly free verse, though there is one sestina, a few villanelles, and several poems made up of quatrains. The title refers to the interplay of light and darkness, but the poems illustrate several more themes than just the one. The fifty-some poems in the collection explore such themes as light and darkness, death (both of a child and a spouse), drowning, mythology, and loss. There are several poems that don’t fit neatly into any of these categories scattered throughout, most of which are narratives. Overall, I would give this collection 3 out of 4 stars. …

None of the poetry in Chiaroscuro is bad, though some is overly sentimental. I would recommend this for anyone who wants a light read of poetry and is looking for something simple yet beautiful. This is a collection of the sort of poetry that can be enjoyed easily, perhaps at the end of a long day.
