In Defence of Adultery

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that good, 24 Jun. 2003
This review is from: In Defence of Adultery (Paperback)
Yes, Julia Copus is very deft and careful with language, but really - what has she got to say? Her poems are like finely worked tapestries that create a boring picture. Read more than half the book and you realise she has a certain set of templates, a certain set of habits, that she uses continually - which takes all the surprise out of her poems - we always know what's coming next. And I can't help feeling that her use of all that scientific imagery (and that cheesy 'provocative' title) is something rather tacked on to make what are essentially dull poems appear more interesting.
