Poems 1970 1984

by Peter Reading, Poems 1970 1984 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Poems 1970 1984 books, Peter Reading was one of Britain's most original and controversial poets: angry, uncompromising, gruesomely ironic, hilarious and heartbreaking - as funny as he was disconcerting. Over four decades he became our most skilful and technically inventive poet, mixing the matter and speech of the gutter with highly sophisticated metrical and syllabic patterns to produce scathing and grotesque accounts of lives blighted by greed, meanness, ignorance, phony media flimflam, political ineptness and cultural impoverishment. Each of his collections is self-contained, as carefully constructed and plotted as a novel, interweaving voices and narrative strands which can now be seen to link the 24 books which make up his Collected Poems. This was published in three volumes from Bloodaxe: Poems 1970-1984 (1995), Poems 1985-1996 (1996) and Poems 1997-2003 (2003). He subsequently produced two later collections, -273.15 (2005) and Vendange Tardive (2010). He died in 2011.Volume 1 of his Collected Poems includes an Introduction by Isabel Martin and was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. The collections included (in full) are: Water and Waste (1970), For the Municipality's Elderly (1974), The Prison Cell & Barrel Mystery (1976), Nothing For Anyone (1977), Fiction (1979), Tom o' Bedlam's Beauties (1981), Diplopic (1983), 5x5x5x5x5 (1983) and C (1984).

Faunal

by Peter Reading, Faunal Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Faunal books, After mapping national decline over thirty years through twenty books, Peter Reading turns back in Faunal from blighted and bloated Old Blighty to focus vulture-like on threatened species, from feckless man himself to woodcocks, warblers and the whooping cranes of Texas. This also is his childhood territory, for birds and animals were his first love before darker obsessions seized his imagination. His early naturalist's habit of close observation has persisted through his poetry, which in Faunal depicts wildlife from Mexico and Australia to Homer's wine-dark Aegean and the urban backwaters of Britain and America. Reading has an unerring eye for his birds, bats and beasts, moving between natural and human habitats with all his senses alert for danger and duplicity. Here be swamp alligators and crab-crunching sea otters, the free-flying frigate bird and the oil-slicked auk on the beach, the rabbit felled by myxomatosis and Homo sapiens floundering after chemotherapy. Faunal is both an ecologist's field notebook of poems and an anthropol-ogist's account of his last expedition: half Noah's Ark, half Ship of Fools. Poetry Book Society Recommendation.

Absolute Zero

by Peter Reading, Absolute Zero Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Absolute Zero books, After mapping Britain's national decline over thirty years through 25 books of poetry, Peter Reading reinvented himself as a writer in his 21st-century work. The bitter social critic became poetry's Millennial prophet of doom, directing his venom and sorrow at the destruction of the world's wildlife and environment. -273.15 [absolute zero] was his first new collection since his three-volume Collected Poems. The book is a lament, a tirade, a disaster warning, and an anthropologist's catalogue of our final expedition addressed to an earlier survivor of global catastrophe, Noah of the Flood. He published his final collection, Vendange Tardive, in 2010.
