An anthology of poems to help you through the battle of the sexes by much-loved poetry TV presenter, Daisy Goodwin.
‘101 Poems to Help You Understand Men (and Women)’ is the ultimate alternative to the friend at the end of the phone. Ditch ‘The Rules’, pop psychology, scented candles, life coaches and aromatherapy. If you want to avoid being a casualty in the battle of the sexes listen to the people who know – the poets who, through the ages, have been there too…
Daisy Goodwin introduces each section of poems with her usual tongue-in-cheek, witty, and serious, linking narratives. With chapters such as ‘How to Make Yourself Irresistible to the Opposite Sex’ (see Margaret Atwood’s ‘Siren Song’: ‘the song that forces men to leap overboard in squadrons…’); ‘Why Doesn’t He Ring, The Bastard?’, ‘Men Have Feelings Too’; ‘My Funny Valentine’; and ‘Forgotten But Not Forgiven’, ‘101 Poems to Help You Understand Men (and Women)’ is truly an essential guide.
