Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass by Lana Del Rey Poetry Book Review

Another recent addition to my collection of poetry books is Lana Del Rey’s book ‘Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass’.

Possibly one of my most favourite poetry books that I’ve read is Lana Del Rey’s Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass.

I really liked this collection as it was much different to the shorter style poems I usually read. Each poem told a unique and interesting story and I really felt the impact of a lot of them. Nestled in the back of the collection was some haikus. I don’t normally read haikus but I really enjoyed reading Lana Del Rey’s.

My favourite poem in all the collection was SportCruiser. It’s a lovely long poem about learning to fly and dealing with self-doubt and self-acceptance. It struck a chord with me, though I’m not sure entirely why.

I’ve found that reading this poetry book has helped with my own poetry as well, it’s made me feel a lot more free with what I write about and has helped break down some of the boundaries I had put in place with my own writing.

I would recommend reading this book if you’re in the mood for some thought-provoking poems. Poems that really make you think about life and love and what not.
