Rate this:
Well-known for his prose, as well as his TV appearances, Clive James has also established a name for himself in the world of poetry. His previous collections, "Other Passports" and "The Book of My Enemy", were critically acclaimed and accomplished, yet simultaneously accessible and entertaining - and his new book promises more of the same. Bringing together poems written over the last five years, "Angels over Elsinore" is impressive not only in terms of its execution, but also in terms of its scope and versatility. Praise for "The Book of My Enemy": 'James writes with exquisite perception and surgical precision; he is a poet of powerful argument and emotional force' - "The Times". 'Page after page of "The Book of My Enemy" confirms James has the primary, sine qua non gifts of a poet' - "Sunday Telegraph". 'Reading these poems is like listening to a talking book, with that familiar braggadocio, that strictly upbeat delivery, insight, timing and agreeable passion' - "Independent".
