Words From An Unlikely Poet (2017) by Charlie Hasler is the poet’s debut collection of poems.
Hasler’s poetic style is very accessible and is spoken from the heart. The poems have a lot of depth and are very authentic to life’s ups and downs. They are at times dark but that’s true of life sometimes. It is a perfectly paced and put together collection which delves into themes such as depression, self discovery, love, religion and life. The tone is very matter-of-fact but heartfelt. A very touching collection of poetry.
This is a powerful and thought-provoking collection. As the poet goes through questions about himself and life in general, the reader is swept into thinking about their own thoughts on the issues presented. It is a sensitively written collection which explores many important themes with honesty and care. The poems deal with life in an honest portrayal where there are good times, bad times, mundane times and always a ray of hope and survival even against the harshest storms.
Hasler’s openness creates a gorgeous collection. It is raw and has real personality and humanness flowing through the entire collection. The order in which the poems appear is organized well too and make the journey of the poems feel like a short story in poems that are very relatable and beautiful. The language throughout suits the tone of each poem and is well thought out. The repetition technique works very well to create atmosphere and mood and the images are vividly painted.
It is a stunning collection.
