Description

Olivia Diamond's poetry, like her life, begins in the very center of America and makes its way into a much larger world. She has the range to bind her words in classical poetic form and proves herself a master. The geography of her poetry extends from the domestic to the deeply spiritual. She writes with a gentle humorous appreciation of the vagaries of day-to-day life, from holding hands in a movie theater to an imagined conversation between Marilyn Monroe and Dame Edith Sitwell to roasting coffee in Saudi Arabia. Her poetical journey covers growing up in America's heartland to the Middle East. She expresses her experiences in a variety of styles to suit her vision. The inner and outer scenery she explores in her poems evoke both laughter and pain; while her pungent, yet tasty appraisal of humanity summon all five senses to participate in the celebration.
