    Cope's second collection came out in 1992, a full six years after her first. It's another slim volume, Cope never being the most prolific poet – nevertheless, it was this that cemented her reputation, and when Ted Hughes died in 1998 she was the popular choice to replace him as Poet Laureate. Instead it went to Andrew Motion. (Cope's name came up again when Motion stepped down in 2009, but this time Liz decided – probably rightly – on Carol Ann Duffy.)The poems here reflect her increasing [...]

    I will admit that I did not read the entire collection of poems; however, I very much enjoyed the poem "Bloody Men," which I shall post here and explain why henceforth.Bloody men are like bloody buses;You wait for about a year,And as soon as one approaches your stop,Two or three others appear.You look at them flashing their indicators,Offering you a ride.You're trying to read the destinations;You haven't much time to decide.If you make a mistake, there is no turning back.Jump off, and you'll sta [...]

    Excellent read for cheering anybody up on a rainy day, whether real or emotional rain. I think my favourite verse is the first one from "Men and Their Boring Arguments":One man on his own can be quite good funBut don't go drinking with two -They'll probably have an argumentAnd take no notice of you.

    I thought this was genius! It’s rare to see a collection of poetry where all the poems are great (usually you end up saying something along the lines of “I liked some poems, but not others” – this doesn’t make for a compelling review), but to my mind this is now only second to Ted Hughes’ Crow in favourite collections of poetry. The poems are all extremely witty, relevant, and often biting and brutal on top.Obviously Wendy Cope is a comedic poet, but I was pleasantly surprised by how [...]

    I really enjoyed this little book of poetry. A favorite was I Worry, and I think it's a great example of Wendy Cope's overall style. Witty but not cynical, poignant but light:"I worry about you-So long since we spoke.Love, are you downhearted,Dispirited, broke?I worry about you.I can't sleep at night.Are you sad? Are you lonely?Or are you all right?They say that men sufferAs badly, as long.I worry, I worry,In case they are wrong."In their honesty, most poems are very personal and some are moving [...]

    an unmitigated delight!

    I read this anthology because it had The Orange in it which is one of the most beautiful love poems I have read in its everydayness. However, I felt the rest of it was rather trite and my enjoyment inconsistent, I genuinely didn't like the way she talked about male poets - not because it's sexist which it is, but more because I don't like trite generalisations forced into a rhythm and rhyme. Now and again though there would be the odd gem that caught me by surprise. For instance, the following v [...]

    This follow-up volume to Wendy Cope's brilliant "Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis" is sad and disappointing. Lacking the scintillating parodies and bright spirits of the earlier volume, this collection of poems feels negative and repetitious. Her lines still bite, as in the couplet Two Cures for Love:1. Don't see him. Don't call or write a letter.2. The easy way: get to know him better.But that couplet, which is a poem and gets a page to itself, exemplifies the sense of this volume being thin and [...]

    Bryn (Plus Others)
    This had more poems that I felt strongly about than her first collection, so all in all I think I like it more. As always, some do not work for me, but many did, and some of the love poems in particular are very moving.

    Matt Hunt
    There were a few poems which I really enjoyed particularly "Bloody Men", "Flowers" and "Advice for young women" but overall I found the commitment to rhyme and structure too much.

    Jill Hudson
    Wendy Cope is a proper poet. Her poetry scans, rhymes, moves and challenges. What's not to like?

    Andrew Green
    I love Wendy Cope’s work; witty, technically brilliant and accessible all at the same time.

    Christine Aliferis
    Light and humorous but with depth. Very of the moment despite being written in 1992. It will resonate with men and women making their way in the modern world. I want to read more of Wendy's work.

    Nikki Plummer
    'Men and Their Boring Arguments' speaks to me on a deep personal level.

    Jon Margetts
    Cope's poetry is well-known and regarded for it's irreverence, idiosyncrasy and humour, and no review would do Serious Concerns justice without mentioning some of the truly laugh-out-loud moments contained within: the sonnet, Faint Praise, in which Cope mockingly adulates a man on the shorter side is perfect in its thinly veiled sarcasm; the couplet of Two Cures for Love; and the exaggerated, elevated poetic voice of the Jason Strugnell poems (for example, on goldfish: "Ludic, aureate creatures, [...]

    Cathy Geagan
    I’m an unabashed fan of Wendy Cope. She’s not the most prolific of poets, but her keen eye when observing the everyday and mundane means I often return to her relatively slight output. The verse may be light but the subjects addressed can be weighty, and despite the surface simplicity Cope is extremely technically skilled, employing the full range of traditional rhymed forms. She reminds me of Philip Larkin, and if you know me you’ll know that’s high praise indeed. I recently revisited S [...]

    Belle
    I'm not usually a reader of poetry but this book was given to me almost 15 years ago as a gift while I was going through a difficult time in my life and I dip into it every now and again because the poems are, on the whole, short and witty and cover all kinds of life issues. There are a few poems about relationships and 'Bloody Men' but these aren't cynical in any way and manage to be funny and lighthearted but touching at the same time. For example, Bloody Men relates to men being like buses an [...]

    Gramarye
    Another excellent collection of Wendy Cope's poetry. The poems in this volume are a little more focused on romance and relationships (both good and bad) than those in Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis, but Cope's writing is as clear and clever as ever.

    Tandava Brahmachari
    If you don't know Wendy Cope, yes this is a mostly ironic title for her very lighthearted poetry. This collection contains what were already a couple favorites of mine: "The Orange," and "Valentine." Some new ones that I quite liked were: "Bloody Men," "Kindness to Animals," "Exchange of Letters," "Favourite," "After the Lunch," and "New Season."

    Fede
    Love,love, love,love, love, love,love, love, love,Dooby doo dooby doo,All you need is love,Dooby doo dooby doo,All you need is love,Dooby doo dooby doo,All you need is love, loveOr, failing that, alcohol.Very enjoyable witty and funny collection of poems.

    Kimi
    she's funny. cope's rejoinder to a critic who says she writes to amuse and this is both her strength and weakness: no, i write to make people miserable and give them bad indigestion. to paraphrase, of course. the poem is much morepoetic.

    Becky
    I really like comic poetry, and was pleasantly surprised that this book didn't feel too dated. Wendy Cope reminds me of Dorothy Parker and Stevie Smith, although I'm sure there are other comparisons that would be more apt.The Faber & Faber cover just kills me.

    Jim Leckband
    For twenty years I've had this bookOf poems by Wendy Cope.Twenty years without a look,Twenty years of not much hope.Then the book came up by random,My spreadsheet said I should read it next.And viola, I'm in her fandomBy reading this winsome and witty text.

    Nick
    a brilliant collection of witty, insightful and touching poems. They made me laugh out louda rare emotion indeed where poetry is concerned.This collection is a real delight!

    Stacey
    Nearly perfect poetry

    Mia
    Funny, inspirational, great read to clear you head and have some fun :)

    Heila
    If you want to shout out loud with laughter, you'll like this one. She's so funny, funny, funny. And agile with words. I didn't like every poem, but the ones I did, I really, really did.

    Juliana Graham
    I really like Wendy Cope's poems, particularly the ones she writes as 'herself' rather than Strugnell. She has a realistic approach to life but is not unpleasantly cynical. A sensible lady!

    Rose
    Hah, some very clever and funny poems in here. Enjoyed it more than I've enjoyed much poetry in a while. At the same time, some very moving poems.
