By Kirsten Johnson on January 8, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you like Elizabeth Bishop, Raymond Carver, Wendy Cope, or Gerald Stern, you'll appreciate Fleur Adcock's work. She's a native New Zealander now living in England. Her poems are conversational in tone, completely unsentimental, and often funny, with surprising twists and turns. They're also well-constructed with skillful use of meter and rhyme. I'm particularly enjoying her series based on research into the lives of her ancestors. These poems, built upon snippets of history, talk movingly and humorously about our relationship to our forebears. Listen to the first 2 lines of "Nellie:" "Just because it was so long ago" "doesn't mean it ceases to be sad."
You're drawn right in.

Many are the poets one recalls fondly but fails to take off the shelf (I am vaguely paraphrasing Dr Johnson here), fewer those to whom one gratefully returns, each time discovering afresh And she is still alive!
