Grabbing the Apple is an anthology of poems by women poets of New York City, with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden as the central theme. The anthology takes up 84 pages, with biographies of the poets at the end. I love poetry anthologies. Look closely at the titles to give a hint of where each poem will gently or turbulently twist you. Some poems were good, but I was unable to latch onto many of them. That said, poems are a personal experience so others may feel differently.
In the poem “In Morocco,” by Iris Schwartz, the author takes us back to an ancient time, when hope kept women going, and their solidarity gave them confidence in a chaotic world. I liked this poem and could relate to it on a few levels.
