Neil Astley - thanks again for another amazing anthology
on 6 June 2011
The earlier reiews of this stunning piece of work say almost everything that I wanted to say about this outstanding anthology, the third in the series with "Being Alive" and "Staying Alive". The earlier works created a wealth of new interest in (what we call) contemporary poetry and this work is sure to do the same; maybe bringing in fresh groups of readers as well. What amazes me most is the reach of Neil Astley - to have produced one anthology to the standard of "Being Alive" was remarkable - "Staying Alive" was equally as remarkable and what other superlative can we add for "Being Human". Neil Astley must be congratulated for introducing poets to us and bringing their outstanding poetry to our attention. If you are looking for Christmas presents for that "difficult to buy for" person, look no further.
