Be fresh full of life and oyYes the language is challenging for a modern day American but lots of poetry is Get past it and keep reading because the poems here are exuberant and rapturous Even when he s lambasting the sanctimonious there is a vehemence and wit that is delectable He is at his best when he s plain spoken You can see the twinkle in his eye as you hear him recite his work to a crowd of ne er do wells There was a good cross section of work in this selection too lots of different poem structures and subject matter to represent I will be reading much Burns in the future A charismatic poet whose every creation was full of reality and gift of nature On a trip to Scotland I couldn t help myself and bought a second hand copy of RBurns poemsWritten in Scottish dialect it made the whole experience complete giving an expressive freshness to the Scottish LandscapeHis most famous song Auld Lang Syne was a oy to read tradition and lyricism giving insight to the rural life of the timeA gem for those who have come to love Scotland as I do The thing I don t understand about the people who analyse Plath s poems in terms of the tawdry details of her life She wrote this one after Ted put his dick in what s her name is that it demeans the nature of the relationship Plath s poetry isn t a never ending series of reactions to whose vagina her husband s penis is in today Her poetry is if you like her contribution to the never ending discussion of the meaning of life I don t see that it is being interpreted the right way if we take some microscope to it and herSame here Look at this rather lovely poem continued on my blog.
