Start your review of Collected Poems Sep 27, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Shelves: library-loan , poetry , read Vernon Scannell is one of my favourite poets, thanks to 'O' Level English Literature and I was not the only one in that class for whom the impact of his work lasted far beyond exam day. So of course his Collected Poems attracted me. Not all my old favourites are here - not 'Nettles' which gets quoted regularly here and which to my delight my own son had in his GCSE anthology too.

But enough I was reminded over and over of the power of poetry, like music, to move Vernon Scannell is one of my favourite poets, thanks to 'O' Level English Literature and I was not the only one in that class for whom the impact of his work lasted far beyond exam day. I was reminded over and over of the power of poetry, like music, to move, to strike to the heart, even though he has a light touch and often chooses quirky topics. Here I especially enjoyed some of his later poems about military life such as Sanitation Wallah, Detention Wallah and Swearing In prize for the greatest use of f words in a poem perhaps, but delightfully inoffensive There's a lot in here about what it means to be a man, although most of all about being 'here and human' Wonderful insightful poetry.

He's especially good on War, his gaze unrelenting and uncompromising.

Poetry, please

This isn't a book to read straight through. It will sit on my desk with my Larkin and MacCaig collecteds, my William Stafford and Gerard Manley Hopkin's to be browsed and dipped into when I'm in need of intellectual sustenance.
