Down to earth poetry,
This review is from: If I Don't Know (Paperback)
I think what often puts one off reading poetry is the sense that it is too grand - too concerned with the fundamentals of the universe to be of much relevance to the ordinary everyday person. Wendy Cope however has always managed to relate the two in a very simple and effective way. Her humour is always refreshing and never misplaced. She may never be regarded by the establishment in the same way as the Hughes', Wordworths' and Byrons' of this world are, but I will always see her as being one of the best poets I have personally ever encountered.
