Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass by Lana Del Rey
From one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of her generation comes a startlingly original and accomplished collection of verse. Written with all the lyricism and eloquence that she brings to her songwriting, Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass showcases another dimension to the phenomenal talent of Lana del Rey.
'Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass is the title poem of the book and the first poem I wrote of many. Some of which came to me in their entirety, which I dictated and then typed out, and some that I worked laboriously picking apart each word to make the perfect poem. They are eclectic and honest and not trying to be anything other than what they are and for that reason I’m proud of them, especially because the spirit in which they were written was very authentic.' - Lana Del Rey
