Poems to Live for
Chipmunkapublishing ltd, Jun 14, 2011 - 69 pages
DescriptionThis is the first half of Simpson's two part collection. The poems are often shocking and always sincere, but whilst many painful experiences and emotions are explored, there is often a sense of hope and a faith in human relations expressed in the words. In the midst of this seriousness and hurt Simpson finds room for humour, both subtle and subversive and explicit and light. About the AuthorSimpson describes herself as being born into a catholic, middleclass family, in Middlesex. Since that day she has experienced huge suffering but also shown great courage and resilience. She is very frank about the way in which relations have let her down but is also aware of the difficulties she experienced as part of married life and motherhood. Today she is happily married and lives by the sea.
