      Mr Michael H Hanson's "Dark Parchments: Midnight Curses and Verses" is a collection of poetry that brings chills to the soul. While the influences of Poe, Shelley, Lovecraft and other masters of horror are very clear, Hanson has taken their strengths and applied them to the 21st Century giving us contemporary visions of hate, depression, fear, and the odd creature of the night. Some are poems about the Nevada Nuclear bomb test site, some are more like fairy tales, while some deal with melancholy [...]

      A wonderful, macabre, thought-provoking adventure into the hidden recesses and ghostly realms of Mike Hanson's dark and deeply fertile mind. Imaginative, not overly frightening, but sufficiently grim to delight the devotee of shadow worlds, apparitions, gloomy twilight and the denizens that inhabit it. Kudos!

      Michael H. Hanson is a modern day lyricist. He is a beacon of honest poetry with its emotions plainly view-able on its sleeve. It is this accessibility that makes the thousands of readers who frequent my blog, the Servante of Darkness, read and re-read the poetry columns (Poetry Today, for one) where Michael's work is featured. In DARK PARCHMENTS, which I purchased on for this review, I am pleased to see Mike use his talent to explore the underbelly of beauty and grace. I've seen this side of h [...]

      The foreword to Dark Parchments compares Hanson to Shelley. I think the more obvious comparison would be to Poe. Both poets write poems that play off gothic tropes; both poets use shorter, lyrical forms; the last poem in Hanson’s collection, a poem about a young woman who drowns in the sea, is even titled “Anna-Lee.” The connection between the two is obvious. However, whereas Poe’s use of sound and meter made for a chilling tone, or even at their worst (“For Annie” and “To -- -- - [...]

      If you've read any of Michael's verse (as opposed to his stories) in the past you know he is the Poet Laureate of the online community. His poems are usually bright optimistic and sometimes romantic missives, full of imagery. Much like the introduction to the old TV series “Tales from the Darkside”Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.Butere is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,but not as brightly lit a darkside.Michael also has his darksi [...]

      Although this book does not contain the most chirpiest subject matter, one that I am not too familiar with reading, must say I enjoy Michael Hansons' poems. He has a way of conveying and making plain the meandering wonderings we all have from time to time. He lays bare, with complete honesty the deep questions we all carry in our heart, with utmost simplicity partnered with the profound. Reminds me of impressionist paintings. Simple, stark,beautiful and ving. Worth a read!

      Every time I read a Michael Hanson book it is a pleasure.I'm glad that he exist and that we could enjoy his writings.I discovered him on Facebook where his poems came from different paintings.Sometime I'm sorry that I stay far from US and it is difficult to me to any event, but for sure, if I'll be in US and he has an event I'll be there.Just read some poems written by him and you'll wish his book!

      Poets rarely have an easy time. Poetry, like other art forms, is a subjective thing but more than that, poetry is in itself, an acquired taste. So, subjective, and an acquired taste clearly this book by the poet Michael H. Hanson is not going to please everyone. It does please me, very much so. In fact, I highly recommend it. Pick up your copy today and decide for yourself. Five stars.

      Michael Hanson writes such lyrically perfect poems that it feels good even to shiver with horror while reading the chillingly haunted poems from"Dark Parchments". Comparing his work to that of Shelley is quite right. His poems take you on a haunted journey His control over rhyme, rhythm and meter is amazing. A scary read.but very well written.

    • Cindy Adler says:

      A different direction for a poet who excels in penning romantic and bucolic verse, Michael H. Hanson's DARK PARCHMENTS is a juicy thrill ride from one tasty heart shock to the next. I just couldn't put this poetry collection down until I had read it from beginning to end. Four and one/half stars all the way.

    • Ben Eads says:

      Dark Parchments does what every good poetry collection should: elicit emotions from the reader they didn’t even know they had, or worse, forgotten. Or, as is the case with this collection, send shivers up our spines as we’re treated to dark, horrible things that dwell in the darkest depths of nature—but sometimes that very darkness lies within us. I haven’t read poetry in too many years to count. However, I’ve read three poetry collections this year and each one has left me embarrassed [...]
