How the Movies Saved My Life & Other Themes 1961 - 2017 contains the entire poetry of Martha Y. Wright from age thirteen to sixty-nine and features poetry inspired by the movies. It contains many other poems on other subjects ranging from unrequieted love, loneliness, nature, God, religion, history, politics and many other surprising themes. Each poems has a unique characteristic and form. One poem is a rap type song about getting a ticket from the police. Another poem is in a very different style - "Lullaby for Iraq". Some are blunt and direct others float about in nuances. Martha Wright recommends looking at "Crucible", "Enchanted Hard Drive" and "The Death of Love" to sample a variety. She plans on adding another poetry book in the future that will feature more "movie" poetry.
