The Trouble with Poetry and Other Poems PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Trouble with Poetry and Other Poems free pdf The "Trouble with Poetry" is the new collection from probably the most popular poet in the entire planet, and finds everyone's favourite contemporary Pre-Socratic in as funny and wise (and sometimes joyfully silly) form as ever. Billy Collins's tone is inimitable. Drawled and knowing, yet without a hint of world-weariness or cynicism, he fearlessly addresses the reader as friend and intimate - and comrade, inviting them to square up to the various collective crises of the bald ape in the 21st century. Collins remains the only poet who can write about the next-to-nothing of our lives, the little boredoms, habits and frustrations of our daily and domestic existence, revealing their true importance and meaning - and demonstrating that the same historical and cosmic forces bear upon them as upon the great events of the age. 'Billy Collins is one of my favourite poets in the world.' - Carol Ann Duffy. 'I'd follow this man's mind anywhere.' - Michael Donaghy. 'Billy Collins's poems describe all the worlds that are and were and some others besides.' - John Updike.
