Nk I can see patterns emerging but sometimes that s impossible to do It s also good to realise that you don t know as much as you think you know about things It certainly wants to make me read her ther three poetry collections 25 Cope mostly uses recognizable forms villanelles sonnets etc this is interesting to see in contemporary poetry but reuires a whole lot Rivière Tremblante of rhyming mostf it rather twee eg tuppencecomeuppance which gives the whole collection the feeling Boomerang Detective Jason Smith of being written for children This is appropriate for the poems that recall memoriesf childhood but not so much for the Histoires assassines others such as The Audience a long seuence commissioned by a string uartetI reckon there s similarity to Gervase Phinnr Pam Ayres in this collection than Cope would really like to be her reputationMy two favorites were Lissadell about a vacation to Ireland and Haiku perfect in its simplicityA perfect white wineis sharp sweet and cold as thisbirdsong in winter Though not life altering this collection is comfortably accessible reading that as with much Le Livre Des Esprits of Cope s work is fullf wit and received with a s work is full La chiave d'oro: La formula pratica per risolvere tutti i problemi (Strategie per il successo) (Italian Edition) of wit and received with aften cheeky smile I m an unabashed fan Tendre crochet 2 of Wendy Cope She s not the most prolificf poets but her keen eye when La douce caresse d'un vent d'hiver: Dcouvrez le 3e tome de la srie Snow Crystal observing the everyday and mundane means Iften return to her relatively slight Revelations Naermyth output The verse may be light but the subjects addressed can be weighty and despite the surface simplicity Cope is extremely technically skilled employing the full rangef traditional rhymed There is a lot here about aging and death which is not terribly relevant to me right now but I ll keep the book The Potts Correspondence on shelf the the twilight yearsThe second halff the book has a lovely seuence Chroniques de mon crmatorium of poems about various people at a concert and another seuence about the Beeb bothf which I enjoyedUnfortunately there s nothing here to match my great love for Cope s previous collectionsNot that aging and death can t be written about in a way that is relevant and interesting to young Aux animaux la guerre or let s be honest here young ish people but Copes poemsn these subjects are very personal
