Janice T began to write poetry at the age of 11. While in the sixth grade, her class was given a writing assignment. What she wrote there excited her teacher, who announced to his fellow teachers, "I have a poet in my class!"Out of curiosity she went through she father's modest library in search of "poets." There she found a book titled, The Oxford Book of English Verse. The poems in this thick volume were written between 1250 and 1918, and included the works of the Lake District Poets. These poets became her teachers as she began to write her own poems.Although her first piece was written in prose those many decades ago, (and, yes, she has dabbled in prose from time to time), Janice T almost always uses a Neo-Victorian voice.

'Echoes, Neo-Victorian Poetry' by Janice T. is a lovely walk in the vintage style of rhyming verse. There are captured moments and reflections, as well as epic storytelling, notably a long poem on the journey of a fox, and several dramatic (and often tragic) visions of the sea. As poems do, there ar...
