2.0 out of 5 stars It did not raise my skirt., 29 Dec 2011

This review is from: Poetry in the Making: A Handbook for Writing and Teaching (Paperback)
This book is an ok collection of poems but unfortunately time has moved on. Although some of the teaching styles are still relevant, the poems attached to them may no longer be an appropriate choice. This book was written pre televisual influence on how we view animals. For example, chapter one, "Capturing Animals" was literally about capturing animals, fox hunting, fishing, badger bating, etc. The vegetarian me was unimpressed and there was very little this book could have done to redeem itself after that.

Poetry shouldn't be appropriate and anesthetized. Can this reviewer seriously suggest that one of England's foremost poets of the Twentieth Century is no longer relevant. Shakespeare wrote about war and murder in 'pre televisual' times (things none of us would promote) but his writings like those of Mr Hughes are in fact timeless.

For pity`s sake! Do you only read "PC" poetry, which tallies with your own prejudices? Also, the first chapter`s title, Capturing Animals, quite obviously has a double meaning:
capturing outdoors/capturing on the page. I`m telling you, you`ve missed a marvellous book.
