Further Poems: Scots and English

By W. D. Cocker


Item attributes


Item details

In this volume the abounding humour which enriched Poems: Scots and English, is once more in evidence and we have W. D. Cocker at his best and raciest. A glance at some of the titles gives an idea of Mr. Cocker's range:-- The Creation, a vivid paraphrasing of the scriptural narrative; The Ballad of Christopher Columbus -- would that all histories were as diverting -- and Bernard Shaw Enters Heaven, a piece of whimsical drollery. Pictures of rural life such as The Kirk Skails and The End o' the Term, deal in simple but e?ective fashion with the themes the author knows well, and the pathos and lyrical beauty of poems like The Black Sheep could have come only from a master's hand.
