A Collection of Worse Verse,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Forward Book of Poetry 2014 (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
A Collection of Worse Verse: too Americanised, not very good poetry at that! I am sorry to say. Half of the stuff I read - and I use 'stuff' mildly- is non-rhymed, not even 'sprung', ie. Anglo-Saxon rhymed and difficult to call poetry. A prose type poem, may be, but even that sadly is lacking 'poetical licence' because then the poems are way too short to have any bite and even the titles mislead.
There are some redeeming features and good poems. I won't suggest any and I haven't read all the book. Pass, and I won't.
