    Aw, I feel it s very hard for me to pass on my love for Charlotte Mew because I get so ridiculous about her work My admiration for her is just this kind of ceaselessly multiplying wave of softheartedness and solitary sadness and pure fangirl flailing which assaults my soul whenever I read her poems.Favourite bits oh, I am so sentimental, I like the sweetest softest sincerest poems not the most clever ones Red is the strangest pain to bear In Spring the leaves on the budding trees In Summer the r [...]

    I remember rooms that have had their part In the steady slowing down of the heart This quote from Rooms reads almost like an epitaph.With Charlotte Mew we are in the period between the Victorians and the Moderns, and into one of my favorites periods in English literature This period so they say betrayed the exhaustion of the Romantic impetus and required a revolution in poetry The proposition is flawed on several counts, but that is another subject I only note that the period included along with [...]

    Mew is a wonderfully talented poet and was noted for her talents by several of her famous contemporaries such as Thomas Hardy, May Sinclair and Virginia Woolf Sadly, she is now all but forgotten I believe her work is still worth reading and analysing in the current era for themes such as social exclusion, female oppression, relgion and so on.

    I had to skip most of the introduction, it was so wordy and pretentious and badly written, but I bought the book for the poems and they re brilliant I was somewhat familiar with Charlotte Mew through coming across The Changeling and The Farmer s Bride in the course of my life Both of those poems are here, as one would expect, and I found the rest of the selection to be just as atmospheric, emotional and cleverly written.

    I very much enjoyed this collection of Charlotte Mew poems it had all of my favorites and others that I had not yet read Overall a good collection, with an excellent introduction by Eavan Boland.

    I do tend to just re read one poem obsessively, but the rest of her stuff is marvelous too

    Her poems make me feel warm and fuzzy Road of the Sea is my favorite so sincere, soft and sweet Reminds me that poems don t have to flashy to be good.

    A collection of undoubtedly beautiful and thought provoking poems I m very interested in Mew s life too, so I will now be researching that, and will be looking for connections within her poetry.
