[ NOW ALL ROADS LEAD TO FRANCE THE LAST YEARS OF EDWARD THOMAS BY HOLLIS, MATTHEW](AUTHOR)HARDBACK
[ NOW ALL ROADS LEAD TO FRANCE THE LAST YEARS OF EDWARD THOMAS BY HOLLIS, MATTHEW](AUTHOR)HARDBACK

5.0 out of 5 stars Just received, but even at a cursory glance, ..., 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just received, but even at a cursory glance, Matthew Hollis has done a very thorough and helpful job in assisting those of us who admire the poetry of Edward Thomas to appreciate how it came about, and just how hard Thomas battled to "get it right". Unlike those who claim that poems "just flow from my imagination" (Frank O'Hara, for instance), for Thomas it was unremitting graft to create apparently "simple" and effortless lines (ADLESTROP for instance).

5.0 out of 5 stars So Much Depends..., 30 Jun. 2014
This book is very well put together, especially if the reader is expected to teach the text which I am.

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Friends, Romans..., 30 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My friend the poet Sheenagh Pugh put me on to David Wishart's Roman detective frolics, and Marcus Corvinus is as wittily-equipped as Philip Marlow and Co.

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars How Ugly, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the things I look for in a published book especially of poetry is elegance of presentation.
The typeface and inkiness of this edition looks as though it was produced in the cheapest possible way by printers who were unconcerned with appearance.
So off-putting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metropolitan Lines, 5 Nov. 2009
As I expected, Poems on the Underground is a selection fizzing with vitality and cosmopolitan elan. I could not have hoped for a more enjoyable selection in keeping with our capital's variety and colourfulness.London Poems On The Underground (Lines On The Underground)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good For The Soul, 26 Feb. 2009
Soul Food: Nourishing Poems for Starved Minds

Varied but always insightful mainly poetry of today, the book is immaculately laid out and there is a strong determination to be international, even though Bloodaxe (the publisher) is based in England's North East.

If all you expect of poetry is for it to go "rum-ti-tum" and rhyme, this is not the collection for you. The diction owes much more to Pound, Eliot & , say, Carol Ann Duffy than Pam Ayres (not that I have anything against Pam Ayres).

5.0 out of 5 stars Life, Autobiography, Biography - The Links, 26 Feb. 2009
Dickens
by Peter Ackroyd
Astonishingly detailed research managed in a most readable and page-turning style.

I am writing an article about the linkage between personal experience, autobiography, fiction & biography at the moment which is why I bought this book having enjoyed the author's Shakespeare.

Now I have also bought two more of Peter Ackroyd's works - he is exceptional.
