Read full description of the books:
I'm trying to rediscover poetry and be less afraid of it so I grabbed this collection at a second hand bookfare this week. This is a new to me poet, and probably my first review of a book of poetry.
The first half of this collection focuses on the poet's wife, London and politics, the poems are bleak - poems which start off as love poems and them cry the dissatisfaction of love and sex, depictions of a London of poverty and hookers on every street corner and criticisms of the impact of political decisions on people's day to day lives. There were few poems in this first part which I liked/connected with: Ancient Evenings, Nighthawks and Albion Market. Part two took a different pathway presenting a bitter view of his broken relationship with his father, a German playwright and novelist. These poems were grittier (the first ones tried to be but it felt over done), more raw and emotional. It was this second half of the book which I enjoyed reading, the poems created images and emotions which the first half often failed to do.
