Ashley Dioses î 6 CHARACTERS

Ashley Dioses î 6 CHARACTERS Mes as the vampire the witch and the ghoul Dioses now gathers the best of her recent poetry into her first collection a scintillating assemblage of nearly 100 poems short and long published and unpublishedWith this single volume Ashley Dioses takes. The young poet Ashley Dioses is rightly recognized for her mastery of formal rhyme and meter But the meticulous form of her work is only the scaffolding or skeleton upon which she layers her imagery and what imagery it is Reading DIARY OF A SORCERESS I was struck with the richness of the language imagery and imagination shown Dioses has absorbed an impressive array of influences including classical mythology Edgar Allan Poe Ambrose Bierce Robert W Chambers HP Lovecraft George Sterling Clark Ashton Smith and Donald Sidney Fryer which have inspired her to impressive heights I was delighted by her ability to tell stories with no regard for modern sensibilities sirens satyrs witches sorceresses and less likely creatures crawl forth unabashed to fill the reader with their lust for power and for flesh And yet there's a subtlety to the poems that keeps the decadence from becoming overpowering a fine balancing act indeed DIARY OF A SORCERESS is a volume I will return to again and I look forward to reading the next volume in this sorceress's diary
