The Confessional Heart of a Man Reviews
Strength in Weakness, Standing For All, This is a collection of poems on the vulnerability of honesty and temerity. The Greatest Poet Alive, as he calls himself, examines the male perspective on a variety of subjects that confirms some wayward thoughts to be so, but these have remained unexamined thoughts because no one was willing to become the object of the reaction to confirm them. Consequently, the author is exposed to sundry thoughts on behalf of his gender, thereby becoming far more courageous and direct than the voices of his counterparts. Unequivocal in presentation, "The Confessional Heart of a Man" is personable and affable while remaining sincere with an "in-your-face" approach to some social issues and relational predicaments. This collection was fun and light-hearted, yet sober and serious in its approach to the common, mundane and austere. This work could be improved by a great rigor in editing and grammatical control. Some of these works would be improved by a change in form to prose as the author explored some unique ways of presenting conventional wisdom, which would be strengthened by development. Such an example is "Caught" that has multiple themes. Or "Brother and I," which focused on maturity. I found "The Confessional Heart of a Man" to be intriguing and poignant. Reviewed by: Gail
The Confessional Heart of a Man is a book of poetry that is eclectic, diverse, gritty, emotional, sensual and engaging. As one that only recent got back into reading poetry I was leery as I have not always understood the lyrical lithe of it. These I got! As I read I felt like I was in a story as this poet evolves. Definite a must read as you go on journeys with him and his words that are emotionally gathered into little pockets of the man.
REVIEW OF THE CONFESSIONAL HEART OF A MAN BY TINISHA JOHNSONShareThursday, July 2, 2009 at 4:16pm | Edit Note | DeleteFrom A Man's Point Of View, July 1, 2009 By Tinisha Nicole Johnson (Denver, Colorado) - See all my reviews "The Confessional Heart of a Man" was like reading a life story told in different stages in poetic verse - from a man's point of view. From social issues, politics, love, relationships, marriage, and more. I was glad the author touched on so many topics. He was in synch with his mind, and from a man, I appreciated that, and had to at the very least respect it. Sometimes I felt anger through the authors voice. While other times, I sensed an urge for understanding and expression. I may be wrong, however I sensed the chronological order of the poetic nature of each page. There were various poems with different themes, some very romantic, while others just told the truth, bold and aggressive. Yet other poetry pieces were controversial and up for debate. You could very well feel the different emotions while reading - whether those emotions were your own or derived from the author's voice and style. I enjoyed the rhythmic tone and voices I heard throughout the pieces. It's hard to know what is going through a man's head, and by reading "The Confessional Heart of a Man" was both interesting and surprising. While reading this book, it became evident that men feel deeply as do women, however expressed and suppressed very different. I would definitely recommend "The Confessional Heart of a Man" to anyone who likes poetry and to anyone who'd like to read a thought provoking book in poetry style. I'd also recommend this book to any women, especially a Black woman who wants to get in the head of a Black man and understand what's going on inside both his mind and heart.

Book: The Confessional Heart Of A ManISBN: 978-1440118609Author: The Greatest Poet AliveGenre: PoetryFlava Rating: 8 snapsAmazon Rating: 4 starsThe Confessional Heart Of A Man by The Greatest Poet Alive aka Marc Livingston is more like reading the story of a man’s life, than a poetry book, although the stories are shared in a poetic format. Gpa takes you through a variety of stages of his life. On this journey I experienced his thoughts and feelings around love, life, relationships, heartache, betrayal, infidelity, desires, and issues around skin color, mental boundaries and physical confinement. Many of his pieces are straight forward, being able to understand the topic immediately, while others, due to his choice of format or the use of metaphors forced me to think and reflect over the words and the possible meaning behind them.The interesting thing for me in experiencing the writings of this man, this poet…I feel he reveals so much of himself, how he thinks and views life. Causing me to desire to have a better insight into his personal story…which I am sure I would then take on a different interpretation of his rhythmic form of self expression. In the years I have been involved with poets and writers, I have come to realize that writing is a form of purging from their souls but through this, finding a sense of solace. I sense this is the case for Gpa.I recommend this book to all that appreciate reading of life’s ups and downs through a poetic form of storytelling. I strongly believe that many will be able to relate to his poems or at least understand and appreciate the thoughts and feelings behind them. I look forward to future publications written by this poet and great storyteller.Lady FlavaFlava News Book Reviews
An array of emotions, transparencies, truths and confessions.EvolutionI have read more current works of GPA, and I'll say, his transformation from this, to now, is pretty darn incredible. He has a way of transferring his powerful words, straight to the reader.Extraordinary. A Thousand Times.
