Through the Soul Into Life by Shoushan B is a poetry collection that reads like a call to action, a call of reform for the earth and the inhabitants of it, but also examines the intricacies of love and passion. Both of these elements tie in perfectly because, from the poems themselves, each is written by the hands of someone who clearly is passionate about her views and desires. Her desire to see things change in a way that moves the poems forward in a positive light.
Shoushan B’s poetry collection, Through the Soul Into Life, truly read like a compilation of someone’s life energy. The reader feels connected to the page and to the author in such a way that it’s like they are witnessing this person move about in her daily life. Her strength and her determination explode on the pages in all sorts of ways that dazzle the reader. A few of the lines that left me in awe were on page 145: “I spun in her rhythm/Till her spiral dance mingled in me.” These words take me to a place out of this present time. I can almost see myself listening to this like the lyrics of a song, being accompanied by a piano or a blues band. A lot of Shoushan B’s poetry reads like music, and you sense her in the words; you see her talking and moving with them. Her poetry also instills in the reader a wake-up call, as if she is saying, “Hear me roar.” And she roars.
