Quarter Life Poetry is a collection filled with spontaneous fun and humor. Through creatively written poems, the author, Samantha Jayne discusses how some of her expectations for the quarter life (age 25) have not been met. She writes with the least expected melancholy and with much sarcasm that allows a young reader (around the 25 years age range) to view life and problems from a different perspective. She slides in didactic lines where necessary and the moral lessons are hard to miss.
In quarter life poetry you find poems about finances: student loans, to be precise. In a poem for example, she writes about how her Alma Mater requests that she donates. She points to the irony of the situation as she mentions that it will be more helpful if the Alma Mater donates to her instead, for her to pay her student loans. You will also find poems about relationships, friendships, the body, and hobbies. In another poem, she mentions that she feels bloated and very uneasy which suggests that she may be pregnant, when in reality, all her body needed to do was fart.
Samantha's writing style and illustrations are unique. This book is very daring and it challenges many preconceptions about poetry and the quarter life. This distinguishable level at which Samantha writes is one I hope for many writers who aim to have a wide network of readers. Most importantly her poems are simple and easy to relate with, even if the reader lacks the experience of whatever is written. The most fascinating part is that all the poems in the book are 4 lines each, which is rare and this prevents ramblings or loss of the readers attention while reading the book.
