POETRY PUBLICATIONS REVIEWED BY GR EDITOR EILEEN R. TABIOS

EILEEN R. TABIOS ENGAGES POETRY ON GALATEA RESURRECTS

I don’t assign myself poetry publications to review.  I just try to read as widely as possible and let books compel me (or not) to review them.  This translates to that I usually review only what I end up liking.  So, except for one (possibly two) on this list below, these reviewed publications are books I’ve enjoyed reading. It doesn’t even matter at times what I actually said—especially since love often makes me incoherent.  If a book is on this list, I probably favored it and thus recommend it:
