3.0 out of 5 stars I was disappointed, 9 Mar 2012
This review is from: Rough Music (Paperback)
but it has its moments! A collection where you can go several pages without finding something to make you stop or think, then one poem where there is such beauty and wonderfully-crafted rhythms that it begs to be read aloud over and over! Through tightly crafted stanzas, Sampson weaves nostalgia and sorrow. It is worth reading the 'nothing special' poems to get to the grit - the real, worthwhile, honest and original poems that remind me why I have returned to this collection again and again.

I would not recommend this as the read of the year - Burnside is that - but a must for fans of Sampson and her lyrical, if inconstant, magic.
