Doctrine of Signatures

Doctrine Of Signatures - Anne Szumigalski

More of a meditation than a formal poetry collection in its traditional sense, “Doctrine of Signatures” contains prose poems that sweep you up into their own steady rhythm, occasionally trying to tip you over into the depths of shock or confusion or an induced melancholy. It’s difficult to describe Szumigalski’s writing style – it needs to be experienced first-hand, to not only get lost in their trance but to also feel the irony at the end of having come out of them dirtied but enlightened.
