    ePUB Collected Poems Epub ↠ ã nikeairmaxcheapuk.co collected epub, poems kindle, Collected Poems PDF/EPUBCan I give Stevie Smith's poetry 100 stars? She is a favorite poet of mine So witty intelligent droll bleak yet not bleak and romantic but not like that kind of romanticPeople always uote Not Waving but Drowning when getting down with Stevie but they should pick another poem I vote for At School A Paolo and Francesca situation but hopeful say in PurgatoryAt SchoolA Paolo and Francesca situation but hopeful say in PurgatoryAt school I walk with ElwynWalk with Elwyn all the dayOh my darling ElwynWe shall never go awayThis school is a most curious placeEverything happens faintlyAnd the other boys and girls who are hereWe cannot see distinctlyAll the day I walk with ElwynAnd sometimes we also rideBoth of us would really always Rather be outsideMost I like to ride with ElwynIn the early morning skyUnder the solitary mossesThat hang fro

    ePUB Collected Poems Epub ↠ ã nikeairmaxcheapuk.co collected epub, poems kindle, Collected Poems PDF/EPUBNever a fan of poetry that rhymes for its often churlish childish mundane pretension to structure I was pleasantly surprised yet again that there was poetry of sonance and syncopation that was deliciously morbid and wonderful all at once Smith's poetry is a weird mash of seemingly puerile juvenalia underscored by a fascination with death and awful things It's Gorey like or City of Lost Children if you turned it into verse at turns scathing and scarring but turn chinned with whimsy and peppermint and scowlsI uite enjoyed it despite my baffling dislike of the rhyming stuff

    ePUB Collected Poems Epub ↠ ã nikeairmaxcheapuk.co collected epub, poems kindle, Collected Poems PDF/EPUBStevie Smith is my absolute favorite poet I love Yeats and TS Eliot but not as much as I love Stevie I read her poems over and over again and never get tired of them Her voice is uniue Her style is so conversational that it's possible to miss how tightly constructed these gems are She is grotesue witty fearless and fascinating Her subject matter ranges from God death war children cats hats and just about everything in between Her work has great subtlety and depth and yes a lot of humor I always smile when I read The Deserter Deeply Morbid and The Wanderer are personal favorites But in my opinion Thoughts about the Person from Porlock is her best work Who else but Stevie would even think about making a poem from an incident in another poet's life?

    ePUB Collected Poems Epub ↠ ã nikeairmaxcheapuk.co collected epub, poems kindle, Collected Poems PDF/EPUB45 stars Writing a good lyric poem is extraordinarily difficult so the collected poems of most poems are 80 90% blah or worse A really astringent writer—like Donald Justice—might get his percentage up to 30 40% A prolific but almost sui generis writer like Louis Simpson might approach 50% And then there’s Stevie Smith no one writes like this though there is at times a kind of family likeness to Edward Lear Sharp funny serious totally offbeat in at least two senses Smith is simply astonishing
