Marilyn Monroe- The Poet…

… and we didn’t know it.

“Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters” (2010) was released on October 12, and is a compilation of Monroe’s writings.  Most known for being a sex symbol in the 1950’s, Marilyn reveals a much deeper side to her talents through the nearly 250 pages of “Fragments.”

There are enough Marilyn admirers out there that would buy this collection.  It may not reach the New York Times Best Sellers List, but I see it doing fairly well.  Plus, it’s kind of a neat way to keep her legacy alive (though how could we ever forget).

    This is soo sweet. I adore Marilyn, and love reading about her live, and the 50s and her career and so on. I hope I get my hands on this!

    My entire apartment is done in Marilyn Monroe. I’ve been a huge fan of hers forever. I heard about this book and totally have to get it, they say it allows you to see how intelligent and innocent she really was.

    I was looking for an interesting new read and now I’m going to go out and buy this. I watched a documentary on her life and she seemed like such a sweet, but lonely, person. I hope this collection tells us more about her, I’m so happy you posted this!

    I really like this; a lot of people assume she was dumb just because she was a sex symbol, but are they really that closed minded? Obviously the girl had some brains if she was able to make such an icon of herself.

    I hope you read it and tell us how it is. 4/4
