Reviews for In The Eyes Of My Beloved

Nice poem. I agree with the previous reviewer. The captor side feels more like Callypso.

My own view is that Callypso didn't really exist. In effect, Odysseus trapped himself. When he was on the island, he found himself in a comfortable but lonely situation. In the end, the loneliness got the better of him and forced him to leave.

Either that, or there was actually a real woman there and he deserted her, claiming she was a goddess. It's so hard to know. Odysseus isa story teller and the Odessy has stories within stories.

Anyway, I digress. Nice poem.

It was hard to tell where each stanza ended- maybe you could just make that a bit clearer. Another thing that I saw was that at the bottom you said that the third stanza was from the viewpoint of Circe- shouldn't it technically be from the viewpoint of Calypso?

Excellent.
I loved your repetition of the opening verse at the end, very powerful. The sense of rhythm throughout was very pronounced, and you wrote both Circe and Odysseus's tirmoil beautifully.
Wonderful job.
