The Synonym Tables – Jennifer Roche
$8.00 + $2.00 shipping
Roche takes a linguistic approach to poetry by looking at the history of words and comparing their synonyms. The reader can not help but be an active participant when trying to make sense of the often found disparity between words and their interpretations from the past to the present. You might find yourself making an argument for such a dramatic shift in the tables or determine that there is inherent prejudice in the diction itself. This ambiguity of the comparison is the strength of The Synonym Tables; it truly proffers thought.
