Visions of Prosetry (New Edition) by Vèè Nelly is a collection of urban prose and poems that portray the author's life experiences and some other people; most of the prose and poems depict romantic relationships between individuals. Vèè describes the emotions involved in intimate relationships; these emotions include lust, anger, jealousy, love, and passion. Through her well-crafted stories, Vèè demonstrates that even though love is a beautiful experience, it can be very destructive.
After reading this book, it became evident to me that infidelity is fatal to an intimate relationship. Vèè stipulates many other factors that destroy intimate relationships. In Visions of Prosetry (New Edition), readers are informed of the elements that nourish romantic relationships, such as patience and effort; Vèè also describes the power and destructiveness of lust. This book equally examines other themes, such as spirituality and stress management.
Visions of Prosetry (New Edition) is truly a work of art as Vèè employs literary devices such as imagery, metaphors, and similes with great finesse. The story enchants the reader from the beginning till the end of the book. The author deals with the themes in this book comprehensively, which is to the reader's benefit. This book teaches the reader about the initiation, maintenance, stimulation, and enjoyment of romantic relationships. Also, I like how Vèè portrays the hazards of love and lust.
Another remarkable feature of this book is that it creates surreal experiences for the reader. The author achieves this by including spiritual creatures and experiences in her stories. Suspense is utilized with expertise to pique the reader's interest, making this book much more fascinating. An example of the use of suspense is in the poem "Knock Knock." I did not notice any errors in this book; it is exceptionally edited.
This book is centered on romantic, intimate, and sexual relationships. Intense sexual references are made throughout the text; I find it inappropriate that the religious figure known as Jesus Christ and certain Christian principles were involved in this narrative, which might offend some readers. The structure of this work is not great; the stories are not organized coherently. This might have been used to create suspense; however, many readers will find it confusing.
Considering the points I have stated, I rate Visions of Prosetry (New Edition) 3 out of 4 stars. I did not rate it higher because of the poor structure of the book. I did not rate it lower than I did because it is an evocative work of art that accurately expresses the intricacies of intimate relationships.
Considering the sexual content of this book, I do not recommend it to minors. However, I recommend it to people that are enthusiastic about romance fiction.
