God’s Spider: The Dreamer’s Maze

Written by Linda M. Rodríguez Guglielmoni, University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez for The Caribbean Writer on Tuesday, October 25, 2016

God’s Spider by Guyanese poet Cyril Dabydeen has a striking title, and its compelling cover art —a stylized large spider— will cause even those with slight arachnophobia to plunge in. And I do not lightly choose the word “plunge”. The collection pulls you in with poems that are complex, strong, and beautifully woven as a spider’s web. [ . . . ] As we can see, the poems in God’s Spider, become as the spider’s legs, expertly weaving as Arachne, allowing the reader to simultaneously see and touch many things.
