Collected poems

Cope, Wendy2024
Books, Manuscripts
Here are the full poetic works of our wittiest and much-beloved writer, including many previously uncollected poems. When 'Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis' was published in 1986 Wendy Cope became that rarest of creatures: a best-selling and celebrated poet. Her artful combination of clarity and wit made an extraordinary impact in poems that cocked a gentle snook at the pomposity of a literary world hitherto dominated by men. Since then, through four further collections, she has continued to delight, finding, through the viral nature of the web, a whole new generation of enthusiastic readers. Love and heartbreak; life and death - those daily desires and fears that underlie our existences - these are the subjects she tackles with an unpretentiousness that draws us in and an emotional resonance that keeps us coming back for more.
