    1. From Dorothy Parker's poetry, it's quite obvious that she's had her heart ripped out, torn into tiny pieces, spat upon, shat upon, and probably chewed upon by small rodents. And we all benefit from her misery.You've heard, no doubt, the one about girls who wear glasses. (It's not true, I'm happy to say!)But what about this one?"A heart in half is chaste, archaic;But mine resembles a mosaic."Her poems are bitter, biting, and savagely good. I wanted to memorize almost all of them. Clever wordplay [...]


    2. Dorothy's reputation as a wit sabotages her poetry, which is largely unfunny. The world is not vast enough to include Dorothy's one-liners about Calvin Coolidge and poems like:The LealThe friends I made have slipped and strayed, And who's the one that cares?A trifling lot and best forgot -- And that's my tale, and theirs.Then if my friendships break and bend, There's little need to cryThe while I know that every foe Is faithful till I die.("Leal" means "loyal and true.") Actually, this poem is f [...]


    3. Parker waxes and winks through all of love's most interesting conditions - be it torn, -lorn, or worn - and a few other matters like murder, revenge, and the humble porcupine for the rest of us.


    4. at first I dismissed these poems as too "sing-songy" but after a while, the simple truths about humanity, gender roles, and emotion came blazing forth with expletive force. This is, hands-down, a stunningly morbid (though rich and vital) collection that is sure to be admired for generations.


    5. She is clearly a brilliant, witty, sarcastic, and lonely woman. I went to New York recently and happened upon the Algonquin and took a picture of it. Don't know if I pity her but I surely don't envy her.


    6. I could read every single poem over and over again and will never get bored with them. They are witty, hilarious, truthful, and sarcastic. These are all the characteristics that make Dorothy Parker and this is the reason why she was unique and famous.
