The idea for this book 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 her 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.

Cures for Love

In this collection he muses on falling in love, how to cope with jealousy and whether infatuation can ever be overcome - and provides a selection of maxims giving advice for lovers.

Stendhal believed love comes in different forms, from passion and lust to vanity, the love of possessive desire. In this collection he muses on falling in love, how to cope with jealousy and whether infatuation can ever be overcome - and provides a selection of maxims giving advice for lovers. United by the theme of love, the writings in the Great Loves series span over two thousand years and vastly different worlds. Readers will be introduced to love's endlessly fascinating possibilities and extremities: romantic love, platonic love, erotic love, gay love, virginal love, adulterous love, parental love, filial love, nostalgic love, unrequited love, illicit love, not to mention lost love, twisted and obsessional love . . . . .

From a motorway service area to her ambivalent relationship with religion, Wendy Cope covers a wide range of experience in her new collection.

From a motorway service area to her ambivalent relationship with religion, Wendy Cope covers a wide range of experience in her new collection. Her mordant humour and formal ingenuity are in evidence, even as she remembers the wounds of a damaging childhood; and in poems about love and the inevitable problems of aging she achieves an intriguing blend of sadness and joy. Two very different sets of commissioned poems round off a remarkable volume, whose opening poem sounds clearly the profound note of compassion which underlies the whole.

Serious Concerns

Its successor, Serious Concerns has proved even more popular, addressing such topics as 'Bloody Men', 'Men and Their Boring Arguments', 'Two Cures for Love', 'Kindness to Animals' and 'Tumps' (Typically Useless Male Poets).

Love Poems

Offering methods to control what is definitively uncontrollable - namely, erotic desire - Ovid pursues all the ironies and paradoxes of his theme in this dazzling work.

The Roman poet Ovid (43BC-17AD) gives an ironic and parodic twist to love poetry in his highly original and entertaining explorations of sexual desire and its consequences. In his Amores (Loves, or Love Affairs) he partly celebrates, partly burlesques, the self-dramatising misery and 'slavery to love' that characterise the poet-lover of Roman erotic elegy. The Ars Amatoria (Art of Love) is a mock didactic poem, a self- help manual that teaches its readers how to achieve and retain erotic conquests. Offering methods to control what is definitively uncontrollable - namely, erotic desire - Ovid pursues all the ironies and paradoxes of his theme in this dazzling work. In Remedia Amoris (Cures for Love) the poet conceives desire as a disease curable by therapeutic advice. This translation of John Dryden (1631-1700) and his contemporaries in a style matchlessly suited to the originals.

If I Don t Know

Wendy Cope's most recent collection, her first since Serious Concerns in 1992, extends her concern with the comedy of the examined life ('the way we have been, the way we sometimes are'), and imagines those adjustments to the ordinary which would fulfil our futures, or allow us to realize the golden age of five minutes ago, or weigh the 'out there' of the present moment, where what is in sight is also out of reach. These are poems of well-tempered yearning, conditional idylls which sing in praise of lying fallow, the creativity of daydream, the yeast of boredom, the truths of intermediacy. Wendy Cope's formal tact is alertly present - in triolets, rondeaux, villanelles, squibs, epigrams - small forms whose power to disarm goes hand in hand with her characteristically tart ripostes to the way things (usually) are. This collection extends the variousness of her occasions.
