William Sieghart – Poems of the Decade


I think my rating for this book was affected by the fact that I’ve already read a bunch of these after winning them in a National Poetry Day competition. I was familiar with some of the poems because they’d appeared in the other collections and to be honest, by the time I got halfway through it I just wanted it to end.

That’s not to say that this isn’t a good collection. It’s just that it’s deceptive and turns out to be a lot longer than it looks. I think it was the right book at the wrong time for me, and there was too much poetry that required you to think about it and not enough of it that just held a mirror up to the world. Don’t get me wrong, a decent mix is nice, but this probably isn’t the book to give you that.

Still, if you like modern poetry then it’s not a bad little collection. Plus it includes plenty of award winners if that’s your sort of thing.
