Hothouse by Karyna McGlynn

Into the Wild

Read Hothouse Online Free - Karyna MyGlynn takes readers on tour through the half-haunted house of the contemporary American psyche with wit, whimsy, and candid confession. Disappointing lovers surface in the bedroom; in the bathroom, "the drained tub ticks with mollusks & lobsters;" revenge fantasies and death lurk in the basement where they rightly belong. With lush imagery and au courant asides, Hothouse surprises and delights.

Karyna McGlynn is the author of I Have to Go Back to 1994 and Kill a Girl and three chapbooks. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Creative Writing and Translation at Oberlin College.

2.5 stars Idk, I didn't hate it, I just didn't love it. I don't think this collection was for me. I appreciated the humor and a few individual poems overall, but it was a bit too "edgy" for my tastes. I could see that it was technically good, but they poems didn't leave much of an impression.

Maybe I'm biased because I was so in love with McGlynn's weirdness in "I Have to Go Back to 1994 and Kill a Girl," but "Hothouse" left me missing the gross lyricism of her previous work. Though perhaps more candid and clever, "Hothouse" seemed all flash, crushing its subtler poems. I do love the...

There are a several really great poems in this collection, and as a whole it's certainly worth the read. If you ever have a chance to see Karyna do a reading, go. The way she gives voice to the poems she reads makes each collection of hers that you pick up that much more engaging.

The power is in the storytelling and not necessarily the craft. Accessible for people wary of poetry.

I'm always doing this: failing at a task then trying to protect the part I ruined, like something might hatch of my mistake.

my first entrance into mcglynn's poetry since I failed at reading I Have to Go Back to 1994 and Kill a Girl before it was due back at the library about two or three different times. her poems are visual and electric, things that I gave myself days to read, like staining my fingers with paint and...
