Pleased to See Me is a sassy and unashamedly saucy celebration of fleshly pleasures by some of our finest poets. These are very sexy poems not just because they are about sex but because their luscious language is handled with wit and sureness of touch. This is the first book to show how the way poets write about sex has changed dramtically. As in so much else, the boundaries have shifted.
Sex in modern poetry - as in films, novels and music - is treated freely and frankly, with passion, tenderness and a great sense of fun. Expect surprises and reversals as well as creepiness and unease, coupled with in-your-face exuberance. We're talking strong language and strong emotion here.
