Two cures for love : selected poems 1979-2006 by Wendy Cope( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea for this book - a new selection of her poems with notes - grew out of Wendy Cope's experience of meeting her audience, when reading her poems in schools. This is an edition of the poems which identifies the references, verse-forms, contexts and occasions of her work, and which offers readers a new arrangement of the poetry as a whole. The notes also identify dates of composition, so that it is possible to observe the development of the work. As well as drawing on Wendy Cope's three published books, the selection also includes a significant number of poems collected or published for the first time

"Wendy Cope celebrates 'the half-forgotten stories of our lives' with compassion, wisdom and wit. She continues to be the most generous of authors, sharing her experience of childhood and marriage and writiong poignantly about the passing of time. In several of the poems she reimagines Shakespeare in unorthodox fashion; in others she offers heartfelt tributes to friends and to public figures including Eric Morecambe and John Cage."--Jacket
