image for Workshop/Course item typeWendy Cope: Anecdotal Evidence at The Exchange Twickenham

Workshop/Course, Mon 5 Nov 2018


In her first collection of new poetry since 2011’s acclaimed Family Values, Wendy Cope celebrates
‘the half – forgotten stories of our lives’ with compassion, wisdom and wit. She continues to
be the most generous of authors, sharing her experience of childhood and marriage and writing
poignantly about the passing of time. In several of the poems she re-imagines Shakespeare in
unorthodox fashion; in others she offers heartfelt tributes to friends and public figures including
Eric Morecambe and John Cage. Anecdotal Evidence demonstrates the formal brilliance and empathetic insight which have delighted readers for years, and shows why Wendy Cope is one of our best –loved poets.
