The most intimate and eclectic poetry collection yet from bestselling author and online sensation Tyler Knott Gregson

With loyal fans around the world and across the internet, Tyler Knott Gregson is reinventing poetry for a new generation, using Instagram and Tumblr to reach readers where they are.

Tyler’s third collection includes more of his popular Typewriter Series poems (featured in his first book, Chasers of the Light) as well as never-before-published scenes that paint the world as only Tyler sees and experiences it. Filled with vivid photographs and even more vivid emotions, Wildly Into the Dark is a must-have for longtime fans as well as newcomers to Tyler’s unique brand of passionate, intimate, and playful words and images.

Poetry is always hard for me to dissect and describe because it’s not something that I fully understand (most of the time) or can even put into words. Poetry is more about the experience and is enjoyed by each person in a specific way because they come from different backgrounds and situations.

Once again, Tyler Knott Gregson weaves together his experiences in a way that can be enjoyed by all. The universal themes of love and longing come through the page and resonate with the reader in a way that has them putting a voice to those abstract feelings bubbling up inside.

This third book in his typewriter series also features some new, longer, story-like sections that lend some insight into his world and how he experiences love in different ways. It was interesting to see these and I enjoyed reading them as they departed from his classic typewriter poems. They contrasted while complimenting each other.

As always, the pictures used throughout are gorgeous and inspirational, having the reader look at more than just the words, but the images as well, wrapping the work into one cohesive project that is something that can be picked up again and again.
