Free Stallion : Poems by Amber Tamblyn

Amber Tamblyn (actress "Joan of Arcadia," "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," and "House") reflects on politics, sexuality, feminism, and nature in this collection of poems written during her adolescence. Tamblyn, who credits Jack Hirschman as her literary mentor, seems to have impressive knowledge and experience that goes beyond her years. While poetic tributes to Thelonious Monk and Woody Guthrie may or may not specifically resonate with teens, images of love, loss, and the search for self surely will. What Tamblyn’s poetry does best is to emphasize her own passion; unfortunately, not much else is clear. The meaning of the words become lost behind Tamblyn’s attempts at putting together a sophisticated poem. Fellow poets may appreciate her use of style and phrasing.
