    One thought on “Revenge and Forgiveness”

    1. Review pertains to the hardcover 2004 edition.Patrica Vecchione’s, Revenge and Forgiveness An Anthology of Poems, is geared toward a young adult and older audience. Inspired by the events of 9/11 Vecchione (as noted on the back of the book) wanted to create something tangible, to help frame who we are as a country and individuals in light of the horrific events that terrorists brought in our lives.

    2. This book was not as good as the title and description implied. Some of the poems were good, most were only peripherally related to the subject, and none of them were actually helpful in my ongoing quest for poems about revenge and forgiveness.

    3. According to the compilationist of this book, revenge and forgiveness are two of the most pervasive human emotions; sometimes we want one while doing the other, and sometimes one becomes so strong within us that the other becomes impossible.

    4. This book of poems is all about two very powerful occurrences in life: revenge and forgiveness. Each poem relates somehow about the two.

Overall, it is a collection of poems that someone who enjoys poetry would find interesting. This book is for young adults and older.
