5.0 out of 5 stars Cloud cover., 24 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Terror (Paperback)
A really promising first collection. The rouge and noir of the cover invoke the devil, there is a black force pushing Toby M further. His poetry exist in a capitalist world addicted to pornographic excesses and the spectacular; the ole worldly guilt comes across as noble and old fashioned. Wonderfully deep and powerful. I can't wait for the second.

This review is from: 81 Austerities (Paperback)
Exciting. Of the minute. Narky and subversive. Sam Reviere takes a trawl through various internet porn sights, chat rooms, drunken breakfasts and creepy, sadomasochistic theme parks and comes out with poetry. Poetry that is often, but not always, beautiful. The originality of his approach leads to the interesting take on modernity since Baudelaire. Sam Reviere will become a great poet if he keeps his feet glued to the pavement and his dirty fingers away from Kim Kardashien's curves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emily Berry has absorbed good ideas from the creative world whirling around her, 17 July 2014
This review is from: Dear Boy (Paperback)
Emily Berry has absorbed good ideas from the creative world whirling around her. The collection opens well and continues to grow and develop, displaying a panache for the inventive: crisps, burnt toast and swimming pools. The accessibility of the poetry produces an effect akin to Frank O'Hara's almost effortless', 'I did this I did that' and is a skill she share another Faber graduate, Sam Reviere. The strongest moments come when she is at her most vulnerable, lost, presumably to the loneliness of long distance. Dear Boy a strong first collection from a talented young British writer. Highly recommended,
