Elise Fintry's Infused State takes one on a journey through the experiences of infatuation. Highlighting the crucial moments of her life, writer Jodi Cohen, documents her interpretations of love, acknowledging the differing stages of an evolving relationship, whilst presenting some of the darkest times during her reaction to love and life. Her desire to document these events has transformed into the production of a book of poems. Each poem is like an entry from the diary of the writer’s life; some cryptically composed, while others blatantly conveying messages of confusion, irrationality, anger, desire, and sensuality; all of which are written at the time of each experience. These entries effortlessly break down the stereotypes that display love as a healthy and harmless process, rather alluding to the dangers of passion and lust. It is clear the writer ultimately confesses her own infatuation with the process of love, acknowledging its hardships and rewards. Although Cohen writes for young people, presenting universal coming-of-age struggles, her poetry also appeals to those who have lived through similar situations. This brings the hope that insight and commonality will come to those who read it, no matter their age. Ultimately, Elise Fintry’s Infused State lifts the sheets of taboo, uncovering the unconventional ways in which one can react to the effects of love and all the emotions that coincide with its process.
