    Sarah Binks PDF í Paperback sarah kindle, binks free, Sarah Binks MOBIHilarious intensely parodistic and at least to and for me often very much laugh out loud funny Paul Hiebert's fictional biography of Sarah Binks the emotionally and cloyingly described so called sweet songstress of Saskatchewan casts a wide and appreciatively all encompassing net satirising the literary pretensions of not only authors but also of their critics and reviewers as both the works of fictional poet Sarah Binks and the laudatory generally almost artificially glowing words of the equally fictional critics envisioned and described depicted by Hiebert are redolent of and massively awash with blatant and obvious misreadings deliberately groaningly bad translations all surrounded by and packed with an in an in all ways atrocious but nevertheless delightfully imaginative and humorous dose of massive purple prose sentimentalityIronically though

    Sarah Binks PDF í Paperback sarah kindle, binks free, Sarah Binks MOBISarah Binks has become something of a cult hero in Saskatchewan and it'seasy to see why Hiebert wrote this Canadian classic in the late '40s it's a unique and very cleverly written ahem biography of theimmensely talented poetess But it's pure fiction quite hilarious and alltongue in cheek Unfortunately the technique wore thin too quickly and bythe midpoint my interest was already flagging Despite that I raise mycoffee cup to the

    Sarah Binks PDF í Paperback sarah kindle, binks free, Sarah Binks MOBIThis is a fictional literary biography of Sarah Binks the fictional poet laureate of Saskatchewan As reading the book it becomes apparent that Ms Binks was not the talented poet that many of her supporters claimed she was She did after all win honours and fame for the sheer quantity of work she produced one book being a cubic foot of poetry As it also becomes apparent that the writer of the biography is not a big fan of Ms Binks either in fact the author or perhaps Ms Binks herself could be accused of being mean spirited The book is a satire on hero worship in smallintroverted communities prairie life and prairie literature My only real problem with the book is that I am pretty sure I do not understand enough about poetry and lit criticism to fully understand and appreciate the humour

    Sarah Binks PDF í Paperback sarah kindle, binks free, Sarah Binks MOBISarah Binks is a fine satire with some very sunny patches It does tend to drag a bit and loses its momentum in the last 50 pages The joke had been made and then the punchline was repeated several times It deserves its place a piece of Canadiana as it harkins back to a rural heritage that is becoming lost Parody requires a subtle bending of fact it works because the descriptions seem so close to the mark
