The English Magazine
A most exciting choice of poetry... Women’s attitudes to themselves, and to men, their feelings, how girls react to different things are all explored and celebrated in this brilliant anthology.
Wendy Cope was born in 1945, and earned a BA from Oxford (1966) and a dipolma from the Westminster College of Education (1967). After teaching for several years at various junior schools in London, she became a freelance writer and columnist. When asked about her work, Cope asserts “I dislike the term ‘light verse’ because it is used as a way of dismissing poets who allow humour into their work... a humourous poem can also be serious; deeply felt and saying something that matters.”
