3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Simon Barrett 'Il Penseroso' on 24 Jan. 2011
Format: Hardcover
What?! nobody reviewed this? OK, perhaps I was a bit put off by the slightly poncy title (actually a quote from JOHN CLARE, of all unponcy people) or possibly Alice Oswald's slightly rarified-sounding name (and are poetry books with river names in their titles my thing?) and CERTAINLY the pious subtitle - but enough full disclosure. Much here is familiar - but any anthology containing an epitaph new to me (to Harry Clark in Bideford, p7) immediately finds favour. All in all this is not a bit preachy (it probably should be) but simply celebratory of 'the planet' - yup, that's right folks, looks like the only one we've got - so best stop treating it as a God-ordained shooting range.

The only planet we've got, probably 24 Jan. 2011
By Simon Barrett 'Il Penseroso' - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Poems in praise of the earth; a diverse, pleasing, unpreachy collection, part of a very fine Faber series of little poetry anthologies, like the equally covetable Everyman series - stocking fillers for the literati. Earth, our mother and our resting-place: best look after her...
