    " Lovely collection of poetry, accessible and thought provoking. A pleasure to read.
    My favourites are 6, 9, 14, 16, 26, 43, 45 and 48.

    " There's a fantastic poem at the end of this collection...can't remember the name of it right now. I think there's a line in it about "looking into the pewter pot to see the world as the world's not". Probably misquoted...you'll have to read it yourself. "

    " I like Housman a lot. I think I have much of his same manic tone sometimes. "

    " Can't find my copy. I am not sure that this is a TDDIP but I Neeed to read it sometimes and get a bit panicky when I can't find it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melusina | 5/17/2009

    " Absolutely wonderful. A slim poetry collection about death and loss that ranks among the best I have read in a long time. Some call it pathetic, I call it genius. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Unbridled | 11/11/2008

    " "So set before its echoes fade, the fleet foot on the sill of shade . . ." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megh | 9/27/2008

    " "What I learned from this book"
    That mortality is hidden in every shiny glittery little place. (and that I want 'With rue my heart is laden...' on my tombstone) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judine | 7/22/2008

    " The poetry is engaging (and understandable!), which works well for me. The only downside is that they have a tendency to be dark (focusing a lot on death) and repetitive (once you've read five death poems, you've read them all). Worthwhile and not what I'd expected. "
