    Through his poetry Roger McGough has become a British National Treasure In public performance he comes across as a thoroughly likeable and humbly thankful man; ualities which also shine through his poetryUnlike too many so called ‘poets’ these days who confuse poetry with rambling creative writing; McGough sparkles in both great image and word skill in his verse Hence his poetry is deeply satisfying to read aloud especially so to an audience He is also clever enough to select subjects which his audience recognise With a sharp knife he displays penetrating insight straight to the point then performs a flipover to identify a new aspect to spin a new twist which both delights and challenges his reader or listener to stop and think anew“This Awkward Age” is a magnificent study of the human animal as and when we are caught out by the surprises of Life I think my favourite is “Dylan the Eavesdrop” because McGough has used his vivid and uestioning imagination to produce such a very plausible scenario explain how great poets perhaps find ‘inspiration’ and so logically the readerlistener starts but gets no further to wonder where McGough finds his sparks

    For me this is everything poetry should be; razor sharp wit side splitting humour and insightful observations all weaved together into beautiful verses

    These poems are funny and sad wise and fun They are brilliantly written with content that is also well doneIf there was any poem I was reading that I felt was just average there would be a joke or imagery or a turn that made the poem greatIt's main function as a book other then to enjoy and give wise insight is other ways of looking at death and the edge of life 'That awkward age' It does so with gusto from the optimistic to the pessimistic touching or funny or sublime or all of those at onceIt's also very entertaining and has many other fine poems not just centred around mortality For those looking to see a differant side of looking at mortality either in poetic fiercness in good humour or just wisely this is the book for you

    Brilliant A poet with heart soul and real wit A poet who actually wants readers to be entertained and who understands that obscure composition acts against comprehension Poetry is after all a means of communicating ideas as well as emotions passions and impressions Not generally a poetry reader I came across this as a result of a comment made on my earlier review of Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood And I’m so glad I was introduced to it It made me laugh sigh wonder and think But importantly from a personal point of view it inspired me to have a go at writing poetry; something I’ve dabbled in rarely but will now look at as a means of expressing ideas about those things that arouse passion in meIf you’re a poetry lover this will be for you unless you prefer those obscure verses that reuire the reader to possess much esoteric knowledge or perform psychic interpretation of otherwise meaningless strings of wordsIf like me you’ve tended to avoid poetry as inaccessible or irrelevant then I urge you to sample this volume It will change your mind and show you what can be achieved by a fluid and fertile mind responding to everyday events in terms that are expressive clever funny touching deeply observant and most of all accessible Thoroughly recommended Loved it
