User reviews
MERCY MERCY ME is a book of poetry that deals with a poet's attempt at understanding the longitudinal lines of the soul as a country, the topography of which is comprised of her flesh. Here we find the author in the place between it all, the metaphysical zip code where the geography of the self lies.

Like the Marvin Gaye song used to inspire the collection of poems, Georgiou contemplates different kinds of environmental fallouts. But rather than answering Gaye's questions on "where did all the blue skies go?" she chooses instead to confront the more challenging relevance of "how much more abuse...can she stand?" Her examinations are ones directly pertaining to her ground, her ocean, her flora and fauna, the qualities of her existence that determine her perceptions of beauty and self-worth. When we read the lines, " lucky I was to be / able to wear my history like a map across my body" (68) we can see just how important the notion of terra firma - this quest for stability in unraveling the mystery of herself - is to her.

The setting for much of the work is distinctly urban, which accounts for this notion of an individual being enveloped by her environment. And it is a very real feeling for the reader, particularly in poems like "Bang", where the cycle of abuse has swelled into an almost manifest destiny demarcated by "red marks" on the body. Somehow this violence is lulled by the day-to-day life in the "overcrowded land" of the city, a scenario, as we are reminded by the poet, too many have chosen to disregard.

MERCY MERCY ME is a wonderfully intimate glimpse into Georgiou's world portrayed through the backdrop of her relationships. It is more than a statement on the necessity of mercy but also one of healing and is written with a sagacious intimacy not often found in modern collections attempting to confront similar irreconcilables of modernity.

I'm not one of those reviewers who seem to get a sick joy out of bashing totally harmless books, but I'm voting against this one. I like a poet who can turn a phrase that makes me wonder how they got there. I enjoy poetry that engages my emotions and my aesthetic sensibilities. I had high hopes for this book and I was disappointed on every page.
What was so disappointing was that Georgiou managed to cover many emotional subjects (eating disorders, race, domestic abuse) without engaging my emotions once--or even offering an interesting perspective. She seems to be following in the footsteps of second-wave feminist poets who have covered similar ground, but much more effectively. The themes of Georgiou's work could be directly out of anything by Adrienne Rich or Marilyn Hacker but without the prosodic savvy or rich metaphors of either.
This book was marketed on is "sexiness," and I guess it has its sexy moments, but all in all, it's pretty lackluster stuff.
damn. never have i read a book and afterwards felt like lighting up a cigarette ( laughs). that's the feeling you'll get when you read these poems. this woman has a good knack for the sensual. in some of her erotic poems, she doesn't make clear her sexual orientation, but then after reading them, you really don't care. the two hallmarks of the book are " a week in the life of the ethically indeterminate, " and the last poem, a narative fantasy about encountering marvin gaye in a supermarket. The sexiest verse i've read in years
Unlike others, I'm initially struck not by this book's sexiness, but by its geography and demographic and how, like New York itself, this book manages to make the most distant places and disparate cultures feel local. More than poetic snapshots of (particularly Brooklyn) neighborhoods and areas (Crown Heights, Grand Army Plaza...) at the beginning of the 21st century, Georgiou's poems not only capture the multitudes, but speak from highly personal perspectives. Here is India, Ethiopia, Egypt, Cyprus, Turkey, Israel, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean . . . squished into the subway car of the poet's heart. The sensuality of this book seems, to me, more a product of urban dynamics than of marketable "sexiness" (in fact, the speaker(s) of the poems seems more lonely than anything): here is intimacy and anonymity, belonging and alienation, any one person in a million people walking the streets or riding the train home--and hoping to find love, or settling for sex, along the way.

That said, yeah, this book may contain a few of the best "sex poems" in the English language. Here is the sex of prayer, and the prayer of sex. Sex with women. Sex with men. Sex and the president. Sex and fried chicken. It's regrettable that this Lamda Award-winning author's poems are being "reviewed" below by boys with internet access, rather than by the adults for which they were intended.

Speaking to the latter, I also highly recommend the book of lesbian and gay poets she co-edited, "The World In Us." It is a stunning collection--much like Georgiou's own.
I happened on this AMAZING book quite by accident...and could not have asked for a better chance meeting. Elena Georgiou's poetry literally smolders off the page, a supreme success in honest (and highly erotic) expression. When experiencing her poetry, the reader FEELS her words, her thoughts, her work the work of a truly passionate writer, whether the sentiment be personal frustration or sexual desire. A true testament to great writing...please, put down your damn Jewel "poetry" book and pick up something that will stay with you far beyond an initial reading. And hell, anyone who includes a poem with Marvin Gaye in it deserves at least a bit of your time!
