Wendy Cope was born in 1945, and earned a BA from Oxford (1966) and a dipolma from the Westminster College of Education (1967). After teaching for several years at various junior schools in London, she became a freelance writer and columnist. When asked about her work, Cope asserts "I dislike the term `light verse' because it is used as a way of dismissing poets who allow humour into their work... a humourous poem can also be serious; deeply felt and saying something that matters."Review:
In an ideal world once she turns 13 every young woman would receive a copy of Is That The New Moon? Books for Keeps (January 2003)In its reissued form, this wonderful anthology should be a handbook for all adolescent girls. The poems Wendy Cope has selected, all by women, are exciting, funny and tender, providing reassurance and understanding of the chequered path of growing up. GuardianAn exceptionally good selection of women's poetry.The ListenerAn essential addition to your poetry collection.The English MagazineA most exciting choice of poetry... Women's attitudes to themselves, and to men, their feelings, how girls react to different things are all explored and celebrated in this brilliant anthology.Julia Eccleshare
