Taken together, this bargain-priced mini-library offers something
for all moods, from the elegiac (Larkin and Sassoon) to the comic
(Eliot's cats and Cope's cocoa). The Auden incldues 'Funeral
Blues', so heart-rendingly recited in the film Four Weddings and a
Funeral; the Ted Hughes shows the modern myth-maker at his most
intense; while Heaney's first book reveals a formidable talent
taking its earnest first vows in the poetic calling. Most
challenging books here - with difficulty and depth enough for a
lifetime - are The Wasteland and Ariel. Armitage is a young and
likeable high-achiever, Yorkshirely sardonic. Larkin's landmark
collection is bravely bleak, with devastatingly truthful
observations on loneliness and ageing. (Kirkus UK)
Poems providing a range of urban and suburban provincial
landscapes, social commentary with a satirical edge, and stoic wit.
