These poetry books are used extensively by lecturers in FE for young people and adults returning to learn and for people with literacy difficulties. The poems are accessible, not daunting, and provide a 'way in' to poetry. Many of the poems are of a domestic nature and students identify with them. They can also feel encouraged to write their own poems about similar experiences and on similar themes.
In Waiting Women, Pauline writes about the role of women, the juggling act they perform when coping with their men, their families, the domestic scene, their gynaecology, politics, and of course loving and dying. This edition includes a foreword by Maureen Lipman.
She makes you laugh, she makes you cry, she makes you think.
