Read full description of the books Fantastic Illusions of Life, Love, the Birds, and the Bees:Fantastic Illusions of Life, Love the Birds and the Bees is an exciting collection of poems full of imagination and imagery, movement and emotion, of a life being lived.
The writing on the back states that the poems ''hint at the ironic coin people flip in everyday life'' - this is a good description. For example - in 'Push' the author is able to ''push through'', ''Push onward'', ''push back'', ''push ahead''. But in 'Squall' she is ''A soul broken''. In 'Luminous Belief' she wants to believe in ''dreams and visions'', but in 'Visions in Twilight, ''Encapsulated dreams'' are ''harsh realities''.
There are four poems - 'Whirlwind', 'Noise of Life', 'Rain against the Brain' and 'The Eternal Optimist in Melancholy Madness' - that I found particularly powerful in their expression of emotion, confusion and stress. Though in 'Rain against the Brain' there is an admission of ''Too much contemplation'' - that made me smile as it is something I can be guilty of.
But my favourite poem is the romantic 'Midnight Sea' with its vivid imagery - ''Where fire-tailed eagles dive/ among the celestial/ bodies flow. A moonlit/ waltz, to then fro amidst/ the ever-present flow.'' - beautiful. I recommend this book.
Read information about the authorJenna Cornell has a MA in English and Creative Writing with a screenwriting emphasis. She holds a BA in English, Creative Writing and Theatre.
With her first story written at age nine and first published opinion article at age ten, she has since seen her work published in The Northern Lights Arts Journal, The Manifest, Sheepshead Review, The Fourth Estate, Mauthe Center Magazine, Examiner.com, and had plays read at Theatre on the Bay.
In 2014, she submitted her short screenplay "Hunk of Burning Love" to the Canadian Short Screenplay Competition and made it into the Top 50 Quarterfinals. With a love of film and screenwriting, she is currently working on a full length screenplay.
She published her first collection of poetry in 2015 titled Fantastic Illusions of Life, Love, the Birds, and the Bees; and most recently, alongside fellow poets in the anthology titled Mirrored Voices: Best Modern Poets (Volume 4).
Writing isn't just a hobby. Writing is an art that is a part of Jenna's DNA. She writes fiction, poetry, screenplays, music, and also journalism.
Honing her skills as a music journalist, Jenna enjoyed two and a half years of freelance music writing with Examiner.com, and had the pleasure of interviewing local, national, and international artists, as well as focus on specialty topics in music. Jenna also enjoyed a year of freelance music journalism with her blog Virtual Music Cafe. Throughout her career as a music journalist, she held tight to the belief that music writing should be about the art and the artist not mishandled and misguided gossip.
Creative writing and music journalism are just two of the many creative pursuits she loves. As a vocalist and wordsmith, Jenna spends part of her time writing songs and is involved with the Nashville Songwriters Association International, as well as a member of the Dudley Birder Chorale. Performing and writing music are only part of her involvement in the music arena. She can also be found behind the mic as a DJ with Cumulus Media. Her love of recording songs and creating mix tapes began in her early teens; radio broadcasting is a natural progression for her.
When she isn't writing or working with music, she enjoys nature photography, painting, spending time outside and with her family. Jenna lives by the belief that art is the essence of life manifested in creative form.
