this latest collection is typical of cope's work. a pretty good use of humor, rhymes that sometimes are singsongy, and a whole host of villanelles. the real surprise is the long poem that concludes the volume, 'the teacher's tale'. written in couplets, it is a semi-serious poem that is well-done. some of the rhymes are predictable, but overall, it's a pretty good poem.
