While I never read the book and saw the movie about a million years ago, I like your work. It seems really human, from a young boy's point of view. Nice work.

Good writing,

Larry

You're a naughty, naughty boy. I bet you started reading it looking for juicy parts and found a lot more, didn't you? This is very addicting.

I'd bend the page to mark each juicy part
and kept a dictionary handy for
a fuller comprehension, best defined
as the perversion of a pliant mind.
But I identified with Hermie's heart,
and I suspected I'd discover more

I can identify with your poem so much. I loved that book as well.

I liked it and understand it better due to your authors notes...thanks. Good work with very good imagery and the showing of the inside of a young man's mind turned to the natural...
I'll wait for the next part and go with it...

I've never read the book, but I'm getting a very definate feel for it already, and I really love the way you've described the boys, I can see them clearly in my mind's eye. Looking forward to Chapter Three :)

There's quite a bit going on here, what with the mirror of the book characters, the memories and the adult interpretation of childhood ideas... The word scalawags took me by surprise. It is usually scallywags here... just a dialect difference!

    Thank you, my friend. Yet another word that's a little different here and there. My familiarity with Aussie terms is growing, thanks to you.

You're not going to leave it alone? Such mildly erotic piece. I laugh. Of course, I like your poem, the return to adolescence, soon the innocence will be gone, so treasure it.

Another fine chapter in this epic piece from you, bro. Really like the way this flows. Maybe I'll re-read that book. It's been a while.

What is the power of the poem?

That's a tease... leaving it unfinished - but great opening stanza.

Does this poem leave me (the reviewer) with a desire to read more of your work?

Yes.

Dialogue (if any):

N/A

Mechanics – grammar, spelling and punctuation:

All good and well used.

Mechanics – meter and rhyme (if formal); line-breaks:

Nice tone and balance and the line breaks seem appropriate to me.

Concluding remarks:


Good luck!
