Paris, 7 A.M. – Book Review

Paris, 7 A.M. by [Wieland, Liza]

Paris, 7 A.M.

Before reading Paris, 7 A.M. by Liza Wieland, I could not have told you more than two things about Elizabeth Bishop.

  1. She was a woman.
  2. She was a poet.

According to Wikipedia, Bishop is considered one of the finest poets of the 20th century. It would be a shame to not learn about her life and poetry. Although, Paris, 7 A.M. is not an autobiography, some things in the book are true.

She did live in Paris in the mid-1930s. No one probably knows whether she helped infants escape the Nazis. I’d like to think that she might have but it is a work of fiction.

Most of the book takes place during the time when Bishop lived in Paris. Everyone is on edge because they know that a war is on the horizon.

I thought that this was an interesting perspective of Bishop. It has inspired me to learn more about her. I might even start to read and write poetry again after reading Paris, 7 A.M.

Read the book for yourself and see if you are inspired to do something different than you are doing now.
