5.0 out of 5 stars Another emotional roller coaster from a poetical genius, 1 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Two Cures for Love: Selected Poems 1979-2006 (Paperback)
I've been a big fan of Wendy Cope for about 8 years, when I came across her work in my first year at university. Her critics state that she is a lightweight, that she cannot be considered a 'serious' poet. I beg to differ. She is naturally lighthearted - something you cannot deny as you read her work. But that does not mean that her work does not have depth.

There are layers upon layers in the short, pithy, sentences. Cope is able to use simple language to convey a wealth of emotion, and engages the discerning reader from the very first word. It is this incredible skill which makes her so popular; people of all walks of life and educational backgrounds are touched by her poetry.

I only wish her work was a little more prolific!
