REVIEW OF “BREAKING THROUGH”, Beverley Ferguson
“I swim snake-like under water”
Through the powerful symbol of ice Beverley Ferguson’s sonnet sequence leads the reader on a journey from the moment life became frozen when “Land shuddered and stopped” to imperceptible sparks of awakenings as “lost words of ancestors release songs of light.” The poet reaches back into the past to break through into the present, creating a new song, a new story – her own.
Beverley Ferguson’s finely written sonnet sequence leads the reader as well as the narrator into fresh hope for the future.
