    1. This just overtook The Dumb House to become my favourite book of the year ❤️ hyacinthgirlpress/news/mar




    2. It feels unfair to me somehow to rate this, since Lauren is a good friend of mine---I'm necessarily biased. However, I also really, genuinely enjoyed this little book. This isn't a straightforward book of poetry, and I like that about it; there's a lot of space in here to find your own meanings, to imagine, to roll about and come to an understanding.


    3. The language is amazing! Beautiful! The words can be interpreted in so many ways- literal, but mostly metaphors-- so many different metaphors. This is something I can read over and over and over and take something different away from it every time.




    4. I think I can safely say that the language in this book is undeniably beautiful. The images that the poems (19 total) bring to my head were so haunting and strange, and sometimes ghostly and mysterious, sometimes eerie but there’s definitely something powerful and moving about them. I pause a little after each poem, maybe reread some lines or the entire poem to immerse myself in those images. I’m very much not confident that I know or even understand what the poems are about, but I think som [...]


    5. About:The Exhibit is a poetry collection that was written by Lauren Eggert-Crowe and published in 2013. The poems are written in prose and take you through a lucid dream type journey through different bizarre museum exhibits. As you carry on you realize that the exhibits have something to do with a breakup or heartbreak. Did I Like It?:I really liked this little collection! The first time I read through it I found it a bit trippy, but wasn’t sure what to make of it. The second time I read it e [...]


    6. "The exhibit won't let you go. It doesn't care that you are hungry or that you are wearing the wrong shoes with the paper-thin soles. In the exhibit, everything is prettier than you. Exept for the art. The art is never prettier than you."prose poems inspired by art exhibitions. my first time with prose poetry, and the cover, oh my.


    7. The cover art and binding are beautiful! This small collection is dark and whimsical. "She is more afraid of falling up endlessly than gravity" pg.8 Im looking forward to picking up more collections by Hyacinth Girl Press.


    8. I didn't fall in love with this, but have the distinct feeling that I'll be thinking about this a lot from here on out.


    9. so glad this arrived okay as we have been having some issues with our mail being stolen but anyway. whimsical and confusing and glorious.


    10. I've discovered that prose poetry is my kind of poetry and I really enjoyed this chapbook. Favourite poem was on the page number 8. It gives me shivers every time I read it.


    11. The Exhibit was delicious and unsettling and at times a little too close for comfort. I was absolutely captivated.


    12. My first real venture into the Poetry world and I just hope they're all as beautifully weird as this was to read! Stunning cover too!




    13. I wish there had been more of this, but I'm pretty sure at least part of the impact was the brevity. I'll be revisiting this one.
